A comprehensive program for meeting outdoor recreational needs in Florida is described in this planning and reference document in terms of objectives for the program through the year 1975 (with projections to the year 2000). The scope and nature of outdoor recreation are defined, and a justification for an outdoor recreation program is presented. Florida's outdoor recreation resources are listed, along with an outline of resource uses in existing recreational programs. An inventory of existing outdoor recreation programs, classified according to sponsorship (Federal, state, etc.), is also provided. In addition, Florida's approach to outdoor recreation planning is described and applied to the computing and priority of needs. Resource, supply, user, and demand considerations are examined, as are responsive program measures. Program implementation areas are listed in terms of needs vs. capabilities.
