RURAL RECREATION, NEW OPPORTUNITIES ON PRIVATE LAND.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC.
ABOUT 90 PERCENT OF ALL AMERICANS PARTICIPATED IN SOME FORM OF OUTDOOR RECREATION IN THE SUMMER OF 1960, AND THE TOTAL NUMBER IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE THREEFOLD BY THE TURN OF THE CENTURY. A LIST OF THE MOST POPULAR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES INCLUDES DRIVING, WALKING, GAMES, SWIMMING, SIGHTSEEING, BICYCLING, FISHING, HIKING, BOATING, AND PICNICING. ALTHOUGH A FEW RECREATIONAL RESOURCES ARE WITHIN THE SUBURBS, THE MAJORITY ARE IN THE MORE RURAL AREAS OF THE NATION. MANY SUCH RESOURCES ARE ON PRIVATE LAND--PONDS, ACCESSES TO STREAMS, TOBOGGAN SLOPES, ICE SKATING ARENAS, PICNIC ACCOMMODATIONS, CAMPING FACILITIES, AND HUNTING AREAS. A SECTION IS INCLUDED ON HOW THE USDA CAN HELP TO ESTABLISH PRIVATE RECREATIONAL SITES THROUGH TECHNICAL AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, EDUCATION, RESEARCH, AND RURAL AREAS DEVELOPMENT. THIS BOOKLET IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR $0.20 FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402. (CL)
