DCNR online survey

Do you enjoy spending time in Pennsylvania’s local and state parks and forests and on trails and rivers? Is getting outdoors to exercise and socialize important to you? Then the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) wants to hear from you. In its quest to build an outdoor recreation plan that will serve all Pennsylvanians, DCNR is looking for public input from residents and interest groups through an online survey. Survey results will help DCNR and its partners determine outdoor recreation programs and funding priorities for Pennsylvania’s next five-year outdoor recreation plan. The online survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and will remain open through the end of June.
