Whether visitors or not, all citizens own public land and its associated resources...
Professional, responsive, and carefully considered planning is critical to success in developing, managing, and making accessible outdoor recreation resources.
Outdoor Recreation Planning provides guidance for defining where outdoor recreation resource management should and could be going forward and sound advice, principles, and approaches for identifying pathways for getting there.
Responsive outdoor recreation resource planning must actively and interactively engage, early and often, the stakeholders, citizens, and others the planning organization is working to serve. Considered planning will look carefully and comprehensively at the opportunities and constraints for achieving success.
Outdoor Recreation Planning is unique because it has been prepared by academics and planning practitioners working together to provide a teaching guide as well as a planning applications resource. The authors have practical experience in advising and helping to develop recreation resource planning rules and procedures and in developing master plans for public properties.
It is a must read for anyone interested in learning about protecting, managing, and planning for public outdoor recreation resources.
