Wyoming State Parks and the Office of Outdoor Recreation Seek Recreation Provider Input for Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan
Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails (SPHST) and the Office of Outdoor Recreation have partnered with SE Group to create the 2023 Wyoming Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). The SCORP serves as a guide for local, state, and federal agencies in the development and provision of future outdoor recreation opportunities. The Plan is crucial to ensure state funding for a variety of outdoor recreation projects through the Land and Water Conservation Fund. One of the first steps in the SCORP process is the provider survey, which is aimed at understanding outdoor recreation providers’ wants, needs and priorities regarding outdoor recreation in Wyoming.
The provider survey is meant to be taken by recreation providers, like organizations, municipalities, outdoor recreation businesses, outfitters and guides, state or federal agencies, or other outdoor recreation related businesses that provide or manage trails, recreation programs, or facilities on public or private lands. The data is expected to provide a better understanding of the current state of outdoor recreation within Wyoming. After data has been collected from the Provider Survey, a Recreation User Survey will be distributed, which can be taken by any individual who recreates in Wyoming. The recreation user survey is expected in late spring 2023.
