Attitudes toward wilderness and factors affecting visitor behaviour: a state-of-knowledge review



Attitudes toward wilderness and factors affecting visitor behaviour: a state-of-knowledge review



General Technical Report, Intermountain Research Station, USDA Forest Service (INT-220): 246-293



An understanding of user attitudes is essential to effective wilderness management. This review outlines historical and current societal and individual attitudes toward wilderness, reasons for participating in wilderness, factors affecting wilderness behaviour (including attitudes toward management, crowding, and conflict), and how information and education affect behaviour. Visitors usually have distinct attitudes, though they vary considerably, and desire a role in the management process.
