Silver Falls in Autumn
During the last 2 years, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department has actively engaged public and private sector recreation providers, recreational interest groups and citizens across the state in a planning effort to complete a Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) for Oregon. The plan constitutes Oregon´s basic five-year plan for outdoor recreation. It provides the state with an up-to-date regional information and planning tool serving as the basis by which all Oregon recreation providers (state, federal, local, and private) catalogue and rank their recreation needs, obtain funding through partnerships and grants, and affirm their respective roles.
