Dear Community Member,

Under the terms of the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act (LWCF) of 1965 that established the LWCF State Assistance Program, each state is required to develop a Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) at least every five years. The intent of this plan is to justify state and federal expenditures based upon an analysis of the existing supply of recreational opportunities using broad-based public, provider, and user input regarding recreation trends, deficiencies, under-served areas and desired improvements; and an inventory of current recreation facilities, trails and wetlands.

Since 1967 the New Mexico State Parks Division has commissioned a SCORP which outlines how state, federal, local and tribal governmental agencies cooperate to provide for the outdoor recreation needs and demands of the state and we are asking for your help!

You and your family can play an important role in the future of recreation in New Mexico as we develop a plan for outdoor recreational opportunities and programs, trail connections, open space acquisitions, and other recreation investments. Only a random sampling of households has received this survey, so your responses to the survey are very important. Please give us a few minutes of your time to share your wishes regarding your family's outdoor recreation needs. Even if you do not currently use these facilities, we would still like to hear from you.

We encourage you to discuss the following questions with other members of your household so your answers reflect your combined opinions. ALL responses are important to us and will be kept confidential.

Completing the survey will only take 15-20 minutes of your time. We know your time is valuable, but your opinions are especially valuable to the recreational community. We really appreciate your taking the time to participate in the survey process. In order to show our appreciation we would like to offer you the opportunity to win either a day-use pass or a coupon for one night of free camping at a New Mexico State Park.

To enter the drawing, simply fill in your first name and daytime phone number at the bottom of the last page of the survey.

Winners of the random drawing will be contacted by phone at the end of the survey process.

Thank you for your participation!
