Abstract:

Forest managers and researchers are now working at a landscape level, but is our public with us? For most people, landscape-level management is not a clear concept.To better understand how citizens view landscapes, we need to go beyond attempts to “educate the public” and instead interact with citizens to promote learning, find appropriate outreach activities and simulation techniques, and directly address questions about risk and uncertainty. Various scales of analysis will be necessary, including the geographic, temporal, and normative contexts and their relevance to citizens.
