A 94,000-acre strip of land bordering the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers in the Missouri Ozarks has been proposed as a national recreation area under the administration of the National Park Service. The history of land use change in this area is traced, including exploitation of the timber resource, results of rehabilitation efforts, attempts to dam the streams, and recent proposals aimed at preservation of the landscape and economic development of the region. The validity of studies justifying an "Ozark National Rivers" is questioned and alternative means of reaching preservation objectives are explored. The question is raised whether economic development, using recreation as the vehicle, and single-use preservation are compatible land management objectives. The central idea presented revolves around the fact that extensive forest management practices have improved the naturalness of the landscape while the area has concurrently served several use demands.
