Use Rationing in Two Southern California Wildernesses
Abstract:A majority of applicants supported visitor quotas in two wildernesses on the San Bernardino National Forest in southern California. Even persons who did not obtain a permit agreed rationing was needed. The most common problem was inadequate advance knowledge about the rationing system. People obtained information about the system chiefly from the Forest Service, but also from other visitors, conservation organizations, and news media.
