Behavioral conventions in higher density, day use wildland/urban recreation settings: a preliminary case study


Journal of Leisure Research 25(1): 39-52
Behavioral conventions in higher density, day use wildland/urban recreation settings: a preliminary case study
The article presents a study of users of a wildland/urban interface recreation setting in southern California, USA. The area is a designated Forest Service picnic ground located on a perennial stream draining the south east slopes of the San Gabriel Mountains. At busy times use of the picnic ground may appear chaotic as users crowd into the stream and riparian zone to picnic and relax in the shade and wade and splash in the stream.
