Your Opinion Matters - Survey

Please take a few minutes to complete a "Your Opinion Matters - 2021" survey.  If you click on the link, you will be taken to a survey with questions about Louisa County Conservation.  You can choose to take the short survey (4 questions that will take 3-5 min) or the long survey (multiple questions that will take between 6-20 minutes depending on how much thought you put into some of the questions and what your interests are.  If you mark that you do not camp or use boat accesses then you will not be given additional questions about those topics, but directed to the next set of questions.  Your assistance is crucial to our planning efforts.  The data collected can help us when making decisions and applying for grants to complete the projects.

As an incentive, anyone filling out the long version will be entered into a drawing and could win a couple nights of free camping, a shelter reservation or a day use at Langwood!
