Boaster Survey at John U. Lloyd Beach State Park

John U. Lloyd Beach State Park is an important, diverse coastal system in Broward County that faces many management issues dealing with coastal environmental resources. Lying parallel to the intercoastal waterway and adjacent to Port Everglades, boaters frequent the park to gain access to these main waterways. Effective coastal planning in the park requires the availability of information concerning the on-water activities of boaters. As part of the John U. Lloyd Beach State Park field study class at Nova Southeastern University a questionnaire was created to survey the boaters who visit the park. A survey of approximately _100 boaters at the boat ramp in the park will be randomly asked to participate in the short questionnaire. The purpose of the questionnaire is to provide baseline information for John U. Lloyd State Park and to create a general profile of boaters and their vessels who visit the park, along with a description of their common activities, such as fishing. There are two parts to the questions, the first discusses demographical information on the boaters, including age and boating experience, and how frequently they visit the park. The second part of the questions examine the vessel type and where and what activities are taking place, in addition asking about any concerns that are directly affecting boaters. The goal or the information is to use it for proactive waterway management and to clarify the value of boating in John U. Lloyd Beach State Park.
