DescriptionOne of the fundamental problems of modern public lands management is the accurate and representative assessment of public opinion. The purpose of this study was to examine differences in perceptions and attitudes of Shawnee National Forest management activities and plans among members of local and regional publics. A survey was administered to members of the public in counties adjacent to the Shawnee, in the remaining counties in Illinois, and in counties in three other states adjacent to southern Illinois. Results indicated that there were few differences in perceptions and attitudes among these three groups.
