    Description

    The Georgia Forestry Commission in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service instituted the Forest Stewardship Program (FSP) in 1991. A growing component of the FSP is recreation, which is the component least understood by stewardship planners. A survey was developed to better understand the needs of planners with regard to developing forest recreation plans, and the results will be used to create an Internet-based educational resource. Less than half of the forest planners surveyed had experience with writing recreation plans, and only 31 percent had previously written aesthetic plans. The results indicate a strong desire for a database of fact sheets related to all facets of natural resources. Based on the survey findings, the planned tutorial-style Website was changed to a fact sheet database for stewardship planners.
