About This Survey

The Nevada Divisions of State Parks and Outdoor Recreation want to know what you think about outdoor recreation in Nevada.  Your feedback will help us secure National Park Service Land & Water Conservation Funds, and how you rank what is most important to you will help to inform the distribution and use of funding for outdoor recreation across Nevada.

The survey should only take about 10-12 minutes to complete. Your identity and all personal information will be kept confidential. The information you give us will never be associated with your name. You will only be contacted by email or phone if you provide that information to us and give us your permission to contact you.

For purposes of this survey, please consider OUTDOOR RECREATION to be defined as all recreational activities undertaken outdoors in Nevada.
