Introduction

Hello! My name is Alex Brechbill, and I am a Hubbard Fellow from The Nature Conservancy. The Nature Conservancy is a nonprofit conservation organization that works in Nebraska to restore and protect prairies in Nebraska. I am conducting a research project regarding visitor experience on our Platte River Prairies preserve near Wood River, Nebraska.

You have been selected to take part in this survey because you have followed The Nature Conservancy through one or more avenues: Facebook, Instagram, The Prairie Ecologist Blog, through the TNC email list/newsletter, visited the prairie in the past, or by receiving a hard copy at the trailhead at Platte River Prairies trails.

In this survey, participants will discuss their experiences at Platte River Prairies. Whether you have or have not visited the campus, there are sections everyone will be able to complete to help the project. The main benefit of this survey is that your input helps The Nature Conservancy in Nebraska develop a better direction to ensure that visitors are having the best possible experience on the prairie. The project will help guide TNC in investing in buildings, amenities, educational materials, and most importantly, investing in people. There is minimal risk of your individual responses being revealed due to measures we are taking to secure your information.

The survey is 30 questions long and should take about 15 minutes. All information is anonymous and will be confidential. Your participation in the survey is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time.

The lead investigator for this project is myself, Alex Brechbill, and you may reach me at alex.brechbill@tnc.org if you have any questions. Alternatively, you can call The Nature Conservancy's office in Aurora, NE at (402) 694-4191.

Thank you very much for your assistance on this project and your support for The Nature Conservancy!
