The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has launched a statewide survey regarding outdoor recreation. The agency wants to hear from Ohioans about outdoor recreation activities they enjoy in Ohio’s public parks.
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 is available on ODNR's website. The deadline for feedback is Wednesday, March 8.
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.
