A collaborative process . . .
PRHSD has partnered with the University of Georgia, local communities statewide and many other organizations to develop SCORP 2008 - 2013. Through this collaborative process we conducted a thorough assessment of Georgia’s outdoor recreation opportunities. SCORP 2008 – 2013 reflects the attitudes, needs, and priorities for and about outdoor recreation in Georgia as well as set the direction for the future of outdoor recreation statewide.
The University of Georgia Fanning Institute managed the project for the State. The Carl Vinson Institute of Government, UGA Institute of Ecology, UGA Warnell School of Forestry/ Natural Resources, Recreation and Tourism and UGA Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach also assisted with the project.
A SCORP advisory committee has been established and includes members representing GA DNR, Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Association County Commissioners of Georgia, Georgia Municipal Association, Georgia Recreation and Parks Association, Friends of Georgia State Parks, Georgia Wildlife Federation, the Georgia Conservancy and others professionals and affiliated organizations.
