Description: Experience with Limits of Acceptable Change (LAC) and related planning processes has accumulated since the mid-1980's. These processes were developoed 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 and 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
