SCORP! - (Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan)
  The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is updating the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) and is asking for your opinion on outdoor recreation in Ohio. ODNR updates the SCORP every 5 years to be eligible to receive federal funding from the Land & Water Conservation Fund for parks, trails, picnic shelters, campgrounds and other outdoor recreation facilities throughout the state. The document guides grant funding guidelines but also helps park districts, regional planners and local municipalities in decision making related to outdoor recreation.
   ODNR would like to hear from Buckeye Trail enthusiasts like you! Pass the link on to your friends and family and hiking buddies. They'd like to hear from as many people as possible (any Ohio resident - one per household - may take the survey).  Find the survey here until March 8, 2017:

Backpacking light, feels so right.
