OHIO - ODNR Seeks Input Regarding Outdoor Recreation Preferences

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

BRC just received an email about a survey the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is conducting. It's very important for the ODNR to know how many motorized and equestrian trail users are out there. As an Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) user, this is your chance to help set priorities for trail management in Ohio.
 
The results of the survey will be become part of the five-year Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). The SCORP provides information on recreation trends, and serves as a reference document for state officials allocating how federal and state funds should be spent.

The deadline for taking the survey is October 14, 2013, so please take a minute to fill out the survey and make sure our elected officials know how important your particular form of recreation is to you.

We've pasted information on the ODNR survey below. Please take a minute to read it over, take the survey and pass this along to friends, family and riding buddies.

As always, call or email if you have any questions or comments.

ODNR Seeks Input from Ohioans Regarding Outdoor Recreation Preferences
9/13/2013 - Ohio DNR - in State Parks

COLUMBUS, OH - The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) wants to hear from Ohioans about the outdoor recreational activities they enjoy the most. Ohio residents are invited to 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). The SCORP provides information on recreation trends, and it serves as a reference document for state officials allocating federal and state grants among worthy projects proposed by park districts around the state.

The Ohio Outdoor Recreation survey is now available online through Monday, Oct. 14.

ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov.
