Recreation and Outdoor Life Directory. First Edition.
Wasserman, Paul, Ed.; Wasserman, Steven R., Ed.
More than 4,800 recreational organizations, agencies, associations, publications, institutions, governmental efforts, and other programs, services, and facilities are included in this directory on recreation and outdoor life. The basic slant is not on sports and games, but rather upon opportunities and features of the American scene dealing with parks, forests, and related leisure pursuits. Addresses and descriptive information are given for: national and international organizations and professional societies; agencies and units of the federal government; departments and branches of state governments; federal grants and domestic assistance programs; foundations and grant-awarding organizations; colleges and universities offering programs in recreation-related subjects; journals and periodicals; consulting firms; special libraries and information centers; and research centers. Additionally, information is given on federal and state recreational facilities. (PBS)
