Agency Literature as an Aid to Wilderness Management
Abstract:Posing as a backpacker planning a trip, the author wrote for literature from units of three federal agencies responsible for wilderness management. Almost all units responded, in an average time of three days, and approximately five pieces of literature were sent per response. Only a portion of the information sent was wilderness-related, however, and that portion was judged only moderately effective in aiding management.
