The Center for Social Sustainable Systems (CESOSS) would like to THANK YOU for your help to share the South Valley Hidden Gems Survey!

The program is directly advised by community elders and the 271 survey responses collected from community residents to ensure that all program operations are guided by community members. A survey analysis report will be published in Spring 2022.
