SCORP University

I was the lead organizer from the federal agency partner in collaboration with the SORP board and other federal staff. The planning team continues to make this 8 - noon session increasingly interactive to maximize peer-to-peer learning rather than the followed by three breakout groups on special SCORP (Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan) topics. The topics were selected based on a survey of SCORP writers in 2016. We also initiated a discussion about follow on technical assistance calls throughout the year.
