    Description

    Service delivery has become an increasingly important part of managing public lands for recreation. The range of preferences held by ethnically diverse users of recreation sites may warrant the development of more than one service delivery strategy. Two questions were examined: (1) Are there differences in site perceptions that can be identified on the basis on ethnicity? and (2) If so, how many service delivery strategies are necessary to meet the needs of the site users? Three ethnic groups were identified, but most differences were found between Anglos and Hispanics. These results indicate the development of two service delivery strategies could meet the needs of most recreationists.
