Wildland Recreation Policy

Wildland Recreation Policy

This work is about not only how America's system of wildlands came to be, but also the political processes through which Americans decide how these places should and should not be used.

IN terms of size and diversity, America's publicly-owned wildlands have few worldwide rivals. To protect these places and provide for human uses, we have created a complicated network of management agencies, which operate in a "free fire zone" of often conflicting values articulated by numerous citizen and business groups. Wildland Recreation Policy is not only about how our system of wildlands came to be, but also about the political process through which we decide how these places should and should not be used. Building on the historic origins of the National Park Service and USDA Forest Service, the authors show how the policy process affects current outdoor recreation management issues. The book's intent is to create awareness of the policy process and a knowledge structure for understanding how agencies can respond constructively to the myriad conflicts they face. This second edition expands representation of those whose interests have been over-looked and whose voices have been silent, including the role of women in recreation policy. This completely updated edition also incorporates the effects of recent world events, including the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, the Iraq War, and the differing environmental positions of the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush presidential administrations.

WILDLAND RECREATION THE AUTHORITATIVE GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGING THE ECOLOGICAL IMPACTS OF RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES IN WILDLANDS This third edition provides an updated and thorough examination of the ecological impacts of recreational use on wildlands and the best management practices to employ in places where recreation and preservation of natural conditions are important – and often conflicting – objectives. Covering the latest research, this edition provides detailed information about the environmental changes that result from recreational use. It describes spatial patterns of impact and trends over time, and then explores the factors that determine the magnitude of impact, including the amount of use, the type and behavior of use, and the environmental durability. Numerous examples, drawn from parks and recreation areas around the world, give readers an insight into why certain areas are more heavily damaged than others, and demonstrate the techniques available to mitigate damage. The book incorporates both the first-hand experience of the authors and an exhaustive review of the world’s literature on the subject. Boxes provide quick access to important material, and further resources are referenced in an extensive bibliography. Essential reading for all park and protected area management professionals, this book is also a useful textbook for upper division undergraduate and graduate students on recreation ecology and recreation management courses.
