Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites
SCORP 2014-2016 / Draft
Update: The 2014-2016 SCORP document is now complete.
To ensure continued service to current and future Georgians, the Department of Natural Resources’ Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites Division (PRHSD) formulates a comprehensive statewide recreation policy every five years. This policy is contained within the Georgia Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), a plan that also makes the state eligible to receive and distribute federal funds from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). LWCF grants support state, county and city outdoor recreation projects in three categories: land acquisition, development and rehabilitation.

This draft edition of SCORP deviates slightly from typical SCORPs by only covering two years, 2014 to 2016. Its findings and recommendations are based on:
   1)  relevant (evergreen) findings from SCORP 2008-2013 and the pending launch of the 2017-2022 SCORP assessment,
   2)  recent research on usage trends in outdoor recreation,
   3)  impacts of the Great Recession on outdoor recreation, and
   4)  perspectives from a recent forum ofoutdoor recreation providers.
