    Description

    As more and more of our population move from rural to suburban to urban to metropolitan settings, the connections between people and the land of which they are a part become less obvious, less immediately important and less clearly understood. The contrast between a complex, highly structured social and cultural urban environment and the natural world seems bipolar. The urban dweller, accordingly, sees only a continuous natural landscape. The implications of this difficulty need to be examined and understood by urban wilderness managers.
