HRWA Members and Volunteers Part of Academic Survey of U. of Louisville: Please Complete Survey


Dear Members and Volunteers at Harpeth River watershed Association,

 My name is Professor Daniel A. DeCaro, at the University of Louisville Center for Land Use and Environmental Responsibility. I'm contacting you about a research project I'm doing with Prof. Tony Arnold (director) to better understand the role that legal and public participation processes play in effective watershed governance and protection in Harpeth River Watershed. Specifically, we would like to invite you to participate in an online survey, about the general types of watershed governance (i.e., decision making), legal, and participatory methods that you prefer, and why that might be the case. 

 This particular survey is part of a larger research project, in which we are conducting background research on each watershed and interviews with key leaders and staff members at Harpeth River Watershed Organization. Your perspective is important to us, and would we very much like to hear from each of you! 

 How can you participate?

 If you are interested in participating, please click on this link (or paste it into your browser) to open the survey:

 We want to emphasize that the survey is confidential, and your participation is voluntary. We do not ask for your email address, mail address, or phone number in the survey, and your personal information will not be associated with your responses. 

 The survey takes about 30 to 45 minutes, but you can easily take breaks and start back where you left off if you need to do so. 

 Some additional information about the survey is included in the attached document, if you would like to take a look before getting started (this information is also at the beginning of the survey).

 Thank you for your time! I look forward to hearing from you!
