Abstract

BENCHMARK 1988: A National Outdoor Recreation and Wilderness Forum was the first national recreation assessment meeting. The need for this meeting grew out of the desire to incorporate scientific, planning, and administrative peer review into the 1989 RPA Assessment of Outdoor Recreation and Wilderness. This meeting brought together many university and government scientists, State and Federal planners, and Federal agency administrative policy decision makers to review and discuss the status of outdoor recreation and wilderness in the United States. The opportunities for interaction among these participants was expected to help make the RPA Assessment, and subsequent Program recom-mendations, more relevant to those who are affected and better grounded to a baseline of fact and prevailing opinion.
