    Description

    In this chapter, we develop and present national outdoor recreation participation projections for 17 recreation activities or activity composites through 2060. (The projections are for the population of Americans age 16 and older, referred to hereafter in this section as “adults.”) This charge is consistent with the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act (RPA) of 1974, which mandates periodic assessments of the condition and trends of the Nation's renewable resources. The RPA Assessment provides a snapshot of current U.S. forest and rangeland conditions and trends on all ownerships, identifies drivers of change, and projects 50 years into the future, including analyses of the status and trends for recreation, water, fish, wildlife, biodiversity, forest and range resources, as well as land use change, climate change, and urban forestry.
