BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana's Office of State Parks wants to hear what you want in outdoor recreation - whether it's hunting, extreme sports, birdwatching, geocaching or something else.

People can take the 23-question survey online at or call 225.751.4490 if they need a paper copy. Results will help set criteria for funding outdoor recreation projects through a federal matching fund grant program.

The survey covers everything from nonprofits and private clubs to city, state and national parks.

It's part of a federally required statewide comprehensive outdoor recreation plan which is updated every five years. The most recent one was drawn up in 2014.

The survey's online through December.
