DescriptionParticipation in outdoor recreation has been increasing at a rate far exceeding the population growth since the 1980s. The growing demand for outdoor recreation amenities has imposed a great challenge on resource management agencies of public lands. This study proposed a segmentation framework to identify different outdoor recreation groups based on their attitudes toward three dimensions of natural resource management at Padre Island National Seashore. A number of variables was applied to describe the sociodemographic, geographic, behavioral, and psychological characteristics of these recreation groups. Implications of this segmentation approach on public-lands management are discussed.
