Americans now spend more than 10 hours a day looking at screens. Spending time outdoors in nature is one of the easiest things a person can do to not only unplug from technology but also improve their overall mental and physical health. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the outdoors and the demographics reflect the inequity.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out the following survey to help identify barriers to users getting outdoors and identifying opportunities to increase access and organizations that are working at getting people out into nature.

* 1. Contact Information

* 2. Affiliated Organization or Group

* 3. Geographic area of the organization or group?

* 4. Which best describes your organization / group type?

The next few questions address your experience in engaging people in the outdoors.  Although lack of adequate funding is an issue, please be specific in identifying your experience, especially the barriers you encounter.

* 6. Within your community or geographic area of the organization you serve, do you have specific information or can you describe the demographics of who is not accessing the outdoors?

* 7. Are there specific things that you or your organization have done that have made a substantial difference in getting new people into the outdoors?
