Scope and Content

The records of the Greenways Survey collection documents a survey initiated by the Evergreen Foundation and the Special Collections Research Center at NCSU Libraries in the summers of 1999 and 2000. The surveys were initiated to compile information about records kept by organizations involved in various Greenways movements. The formation of Greenways movements began in the 1980s as a result of a heightened awareness of the dwindling and misuse of the earth's resources. The need to conserve these natural resources led many grass roots organizations, governmental agencies, and local communities to protect the existing natural surroundings while at the same time transform decaying urban areas into greenways and other nature trails.

The Greenways Survey was initiated in hopes of gathering resources which would be beneficial to researchers interested in the history and creation of greenways and other urban design movements. The Greenways Archive is an ongoing project to which additional material will be added as it is received.

Series Note

The Greeenways Survey collection is divided into two series. Series 1 contains the returned 1999 surveys, while series 2 contains the surveys from 2000.
