Survey of 366 wilderness experience programs (WEPs) examined number of trips offered per year, types of activities and goals, number and type of clients, areas used, relationships with wilderness managers, and whether wilderness was viewed as teacher or classroom. A typology of WEPs is presented based on five program characteristics, each portrayed as a continuum. Contains 27 references. (TD)
