MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources wants public feedback on a report examining outdoor recreation in Wisconsin.

The Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan is designed to serve as a blueprint for state and local outdoor recreation planning.

The draft plan identifies a number of activities growing in popularity, including adventure racing, camping with recreational vehicles and kayaking. Other activities, including hunting, inline skating and softball are on the decline, though, as baby boomers age and rural populations shrink.

The report's recommendations include holding an annual forum on outdoor recreation; building more public boating access points; devoting more money to state parks; and creating more city parks.

The DNR will take comments through July 6.
