    Description

    The management of public land as venues for a wide variety of outdoor recreation interests is a highly complex professional field. Understanding of the relationship between the visitor, general public values, the natural resource base and the politics of management policies requires training, experience and savvy. Recreation planning for forest, park, preserve, wilderness, and wildlife habitat public lands is multi-dimensional and include an understanding of recreationist values and behaviors in nature-based settings; a mix of social science discipline (e.g., psychology ,social psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics and other social sciences); and natural sciences discipline applications (e.g., biology, ecology, forestry, wildlife management, hydrology, soils, climatology and geology).
