This "Case Study" represents the first in a series of reports which provide insight into specific management environments and the factors significant to an understanding of the expectations and demands of public land visitors in the West. The study describes the methods and results of a two year inventory of visitors in a wildland area in the desert lands east of Los Angeles, administered by the Bureau of Land Management. Emphasis has been placed on developing an understanding of use patterns, visitor behavior and preferences, recreational trends and the implications of these circumstances for management. The data resulting from this study has been applied to the development of specific management recommendations to increase the effectiveness and service delivery of the Bureau in the study area.
