Summary

The tremendous increase in demand for outdoor recreational facilities in the last thirty years has met with little or no growth in the resources available. Parks managers are faced with stagnant financial resources, stifling development restrictions, and an increasingly heavy flood of campers, skiers and snow boarders, rock climbers, and mountain cyclists. This book presents the crucial information professional recreational resources managers need to know to simultaneously protect the environment and make it accessible for recreational use.
