    Description

    Public input has become a necessary part of public land management planning (Bettwy 1978). In recreation resource planning, information on user's preferences can be an important input (Driver and Brown 1978). This paper reports on 1977 and 1978 studies of the preferences of Oak Creek Canyon users. Those studies were requested by USDA Forest Service managers to assist them in developing a management plan for the Canyon. Of particular concern to management, was information on user preferences for recreation experiences and management actions.
