Abstract

Landscape architects are professionals who design, plan, and manage the land, and so it is a profession that is essential to defining the character of our National Forests and Grasslands. There are key points of entry and engagement where we have a chance to make a first and lasting impression for the public when they come to visit their public lands. Providing quality recreation experiences is perhaps one of the most relevant, as many people come to understand the value and meaning of their landscapes through recreational visits (Figure 1). Outdoor recreation activities occur in numerous places across the American landscape, on and outside of the National Forests and Grasslands. They take place in neighborhoods, undeveloped woodlots and streams, city and state parks, county open spaces, and a vast array of Federal and Native American lands.
