This course examines recreation management in a wilderness setting. Students will examine and discuss wilderness management strategies to address visitor use, visitor experiences, measuring and monitoring biophysical and social impacts, communicating effective wilderness education, interpretation, information, and conceptual approaches to communication, search and rescue protocol, and law enforcement.
Managing Recreation Resources deals with the human dimension of wilderness by focusing on managing wilderness for visitor use and enjoyment, and by representing ways to solve problems associated with visitors expectations and their impacts.
