INT-GTR-371: Proceedings--Limits of Acceptable Change and related planning processes: progress and future directions


McCool, Stephen F.; Cole, David N., comps. 1997. Proceedings--Limits of Acceptable Change and related planning processes: progress and future directions; 1997 May 20-22; Missoula, MT. Gen. Tech. Rep. INT-GTR-371. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station. 84 p.

Experience with Limits of Acceptable Change (LAC) and related planning processes has accumulated since the mid-1980's. These processes were developed as a means of dealing with recreation carrying capacity issues in wilderness and National Parks. These processes clearly also have application outside of protected areas and to issues other than recreation management. This proceedings represents an attempt to learn from that experience and suggest means of increasing the future utility of these processes.

Keywords: carrying capacity, park management, planning, public involvement, recreation management, wilderness management
