Why does the draft SCORP need your public comment?
Outdoor recreation plays an important role in promoting economic growth, public health and strong social structures. The draft SCORP recognizes these important benefits of outdoor recreation; however, we strongly advocate for one addition – identifying a position or agency with cross-jurisdictional authority to steward and implement the SCORP.
Successful implementation of the SCORP and realization of the economic, social and health benefits that outdoor recreation provides will require cooperation and collaboration across and within multiple levels of public and private institutions. Successful coordination cannot be the part-time work of one agency.
Act now to ask DNR to identify a position or agency with cross-jurisdictional authority to steward and implement the SCORP.
Deadline to comment is Friday, September 24.
