Land Managers' Perceptions of Risk Recreation in the Northern Rockies.
Allen, Stewart D.
This survey was conducted to determine the frequency of participation in high-risk recreation activities in the Northern Rocky Mountains and to identify how wildland managers perceive the presence of these sports and the problems associated with them. Managers rated perceived risk, management difficulty, and appropriateness given management objectives and supplied the use levels for each of 23 activities covering a wide range of sports. The result of the survey are presented in tabular form, and the manager's perceptions are discussed and analyzed. (JD)
