1. Welcome

You are invited to participate in this survey screening for a research study being conducted by The Nature Conservancy on July 15th, and 16th, 2015. Your participation in the survey should take approximately 5 - 10 minutes of your time.

Qualified candidates will be invited to participate in a group discussion about issues of importance to residents in the Saugatuck River area. We are not selling anything and this study does not involve any risk to you, we are interested only in your opinions. If you are selected and participate in the focus group study, we will offer you a participant honorarium of $50 to express our appreciation for assisting us with your insights.

If you complete the survey and are found eligible, you are free to choose whether or not you wish to participate in the focus group. You do not have to answer any question that you do not want to answer for any reason however some answers are required to determine eligibility and, if not answered, may exclude you from the study. We will be happy to answer any questions you have about this study.

If you have further questions about this project or if you have a research related problem, you may contact me, Holly Drinkuth, Director of Outreach and Watershed Programs (203) 568-6291 or hdrinkuth@tnc.org

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important.
