Forestry survey available starting Monday


Sometimes, you just got to jump through the hoops and see what happens.

The Department of Natural Revenue — D'oh! — I mean the Department of Natural Resources is asking for ... (drum roll) your input!

In the form of answering a survey, accessible here: or via the DNR Division of Forestry Web site:

According to the press release:

"Anyone interested in Indiana’s forests, including but not limited to conservationists, forest stakeholders, landscape stewards and Department of Natural Resources partners will be able to give their opinion on best forestry strategies through an online DNR survey starting Monday, April 12.

The survey will be open for responses for two weeks and will close on April 26 at 6 p.m."

In the survey, you'll find questions like this: "Increase percentage of forest cover to connect less fragmented areas."

Answer as you would like but anything that increases "percentage of forest cover" gets a big thumbs up from us here at "the" NUVO.

Your answers will be, according to the press release, "discussed, refined and prioritized at the upcoming Forest Conservation and Stewardship Strategy Forum in Indianapolis, April 30—May 1, at The Nature Conservancy’s Efroymson Conservation Center."

You can't complain about the results if you don't participate.
