DescriptionResource managers can apply group-specific rather than generic communications and management strategies to different public land user groups. This study compares use patterns of one user group, Boy Scout troops, from two regions of the United States. It identifies their public land use patterns, activities, needs, and motivations. Results can be used by resource managers to develop communications and management strategies to guide this group's appropriate behavior, enhance their experience, and solicit their help in protecting the resource.
