    Description

    Results of research in Shenandoah National Park Wilderness on the differences between day and overnight visitors to the park’s wilderness showed that the two user groups are not as different as originally thought. While the two groups differed somewhat in their level of support for traditional wilderness values, these differences are largely a matter of degree. Promotion of traditional wilderness values through education and regulations may help to strengthen the support and understanding of legally defined Wilderness.
