DescriptionThe USDA Forest Service has been implementing a partnership initiative for 6 years as part of the National Recreation Strategy. Several internal efforts have been undertaken to evaluate the progress made in this initiative as well as to make adjustments in the initiative for the future. These evaluation efforts are extended to present a content analysis of recreation partnerships operating in the National Forest system in 1991. Results are tabulated from a sample of 292 partnership reports submitted by each National Forest to the Washington Office in 1991. Information about geographic distribution is highlighted, as well as scope, size, purpose, type of partner, and benefiting resource area and recreation activity. Results from the study have important implications for analyzing trends and informing future resource allocation decisions.
