Federal Outdoor Recreation Programs and Recreation-Related Environmental Programs.
Bureau of Outdoor Recreation (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
This is the first revision of "Federal Outdoor Recreation Programs," updating information first provided in May, 1968, by the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation in cooperation with other Federal agencies. Programs described in this publication broadly reflect the scope of Federal involvement in outdoor recreation and related environmental efforts. The volume should serve as a convenient reference source to help interested persons locate Federal programs that will assist them in providing more needed outdoor recreation opportunities in a quality environment. The information is presented in two parts. Part A describes the responsibilities, programs, and services of eight Cabinet-level departments and their 55 agencies, bureaus, services, administrations, and offices; and those of 41 independent agencies, advisory boards, commissions, and councils. In this section, the functions of each agency are summarized, and specific programs concerned with outdoor recreation are listed and cross-referenced to part B. In part B each outdoor recreation program is described in some detail. In all, 262 programs are covered. Classifications range from resource management and technical assistance through grant, credit, and training programs to research, information and regulatory programs. Two indexes are included, a cross-reference chart and an alphabetical listing of all programs. (BL)
