Ohioans Asked to Share Outdoor Recreation Preferences

Posted on 2/15/2017 by Paddle Ohio

Survey results assist communities in securing federal, state grants

 
COLUMBUS, OH – Care about kayaking, hiking or swimming? The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) wants to hear from Ohioans about the outdoor recreational activities they enjoy the most. Ohio residents can share their opinions about their favorite activities and any new or expanded outdoor recreational opportunities they would like to see in Ohio.

Feedback from the survey will help park, nature preserve and forest managers as well as local, state and federal officials set priorities for funding and improvements.

The survey results will be included in the five-year Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), which provides information on recreation trends and serves as a reference document for state officials allocating federal and state grants among worthy projects proposed by park districts around the state.

The survey is available through Monday, March 8, at ohiostateparks.org/research.
