Are you a hiker, a skier, an angler, or an ATVer? If you enjoy the outdoor opportunities offered by Eau Claire County and have ideas on how they can be made better, the county’s Parks and Forest Department has an online survey for you.

The Outdoor Recreation Plan survey will be open until Jan. 31. The department says it will use community input to identify future plans and improvements for the county’s parks and forests. Specifically, the results will be used to create a draft Outdoor Recreation Plan that the Eau Claire County Board will consider in the spring of 2022. 

You can find the survey online right here. Otherwise, you can request a paper copy of the survey or ask additional questions by calling the Eau Claire County Parks and Forest Department at (715) 839-4783.
