Timber Harvest and Recreation in Maine’s North Woods: Attitudes, Impacts, and Strategies for Coexistence
Problem Addressed: Rural Maine communities are trying to diversify their economies using recreation tourism, but there is a perceived conflict between tourism and the forest products industry.
Goal(s)/Objective(s): What are recreationists' attitudes toward logging, how does this affect recreation spending, and does education change these attitudes?
