DescriptionSignificant advances in social science-based wildfire research have occurred in the past five years. Managers, policy makers, and researchers have worked to better understand the perspectives of homeowners, residents, tourists, and recreationists on fire and fuels management and how to better involve them in the planning process. This research examines how the recreational usage of residents living near the Mark Twain National Forest influences levels of support for fuels management. Findings suggest cognitive factors that influence fuels support are different across recreation users and nonusers, but support itself was similar.
