This course explores and discusses how to manage for quality visitor experiences including examples of common problems and solutions. Managing to minimize recreational impacts is covered in detail in a separate chapter. Other chapters include wilderness education and information techniques, as well as law enforcement and emergency response. 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.

This course is available for undergraduate credit only.
