Cole, David N., Comp.; Lucas, Robert C., Comp.
This report is a compilation of the papers presented at a colloquium on wilderness management and a synopsis of discussions held during the conference. The conference theme was how to determine and monitor the most significant features and qualities of the wilderness resource. Generally, participants identify solitude; pollution-free air and water; and natural scenery, fish, vegetation, and wildlife as the prime wilderness values. Papers include "Wilderness Qualities and Backcountry Management at Grand Teton National Park" (Dan Burgette); "Critical Wilderness Qualities, Recreational Use, and Monitoring Needs" (David N. Cole); "Wilderness Quality, Impact Conditions, and Their Monitoring" (William E. Hammitt); "High Quality Wilderness Conditions" (Robert C. Lucas); "Free To Be You or Me Or Some Random Thoughts about Wilderness Management" (Robert Manning); "Significant Qualities of Wilderness and Monitoring" (Jeffrey L. Marion); "Conditions, Features, Qualities Composing a High Quality Wilderness Resource" (Stephen F. McCool); "Some Thoughts on Two Questions" (Toivo Sober). One paper (Marion) contains 12 references. The summary of discussions lists questions addressed in the colloquia of the National Outdoor Leadership School and proposal for future sessions. (DHP/CBH)
