In 2024, Cataraqui Conservation will mark 60 years of protection, conservation, and education throughout the region. In response to challenges and opportunities the conservation authority has been presented with over the past few years, they are initiating a Strategic Planning update, and are seeking public input for the process, the organization said.
According to Cataraqui Conservation, this update will help them refine and revitalize the vision of the organization.
“A key component of any strategy development process is to gather as much information and as broad a range of opinions as possible,” the conservation authority stated on its website. “To hear from as many Cataraqui Conservation stakeholders as possible, we are issuing a short online survey to the general public, volunteers and others interested in providing feedback on Cataraqui Conservation’s programs and services.”
The survey is now open, and, according to the organization, will cover the following key strategic priorities:
- The changing context of Cataraqui Conservation;
- Opportunities and challenges in the external (political and social) environment that Cataraqui Conservation should be considering; and
- Ideas for possible priorities that will best help Cataraqui Conservation deliver on its mandate.
The organization said that the survey is the first stage of the process, and will be followed by stakeholder focus groups, with a final plan anticipated for release in Spring 2024. Survey feedback will be accepted until Monday, Oct. 9, 2023.
