    Description

    Much of the early work done within the realm of ethnic group participation in outdoor recreation has focused on understanding what was seen as underparticipation utilizing two possible explanations: marginality and ethnicity. Rather than characterizing these explanations as competing, it may be more fruitful to characterize them as being two parts of the larger social structural framework of which individuals are a part. This paper focuses on understanding the demographic characteristics of the Hispanic individuals (primarily of Mexican and Central American descent) recreating on the National Forests of Southern California utilizing on-site, self-administered surveys.
