The Place of Recreation in the Forest Program
Abstract:Recreation uses came to the forests uninvited, but they have come to stay and give the forester an opportunity to give a real service and by it gain public approbation for his work in general. Mr. Morse calls attention to the physical values of recreation areas aside from the inspirational and educational values, and that the social and economic returns to the community justify an aggressive policy for developing and using forest recreational resources. A number of suggestions are enumerated for guiding the preparation of plans for developing recreational areas and for coördinating recreation and other uses.
