This visitor survey is being conducted by Otonabee Conservation. Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide your input.

Otonabee Conservation wants to learn more about how visitors are using our lands and campgrounds. Your answers will help the future planning and management of Conservation Areas and help us to understand how we can enhance our services and operations, moving forward.

Your answers will be completely anonymous. They will be grouped together with other visitor responses and used for future planning. You will have the option to provide us with your name and contact information at the end of this survey, and by filling out this survey, you have the chance to win a free day use season pass to our Conservation Areas.

We know that you have lots to say about your experience. It will take about 10-15 minutes to complete this survey.

Again, thank you for your time and openness in completing this survey. Your input is very important to us.
