Should Foresters Help Train Leaders in Organized Camping?
Abstract:Two decades ago few practicing foresters were willing to admit that "forest recreation" was a part of their professional responsibility. Even now, the presence of increasing hordes of campers, hikers, fishermen, and hunters may be viewed with distaste, too often merited it must be said because of their actions in the forest. It is time, however, to realize that millions more of our people intend to use the woodland trails, and therefore any measures foresters can take to improve the behavior of such people are important.
