Abstract

The Recreation Agenda is a major document being developed to guide recreation policy within the USDA Forest Service. During the first half of 2000, the Forest Service is holding public involvement sessions on the Agenda, a fluid document which is not yet in final form. One such session held at the Northeastern Recreation Research Symposium included 26 participants who focused on the role of states, nongovernment organizations, and research. Session participants clearly saw the need for increased collaborative planning that crosses agency boundaries. They also identified major roles for partnerships and for market research.
