Description: Public forest management agencies often work with recreation-related business owners as they implement management policies. The main objective of this study is to quantify the values, beliefs, and attitudes of business owners in the Saranac Lakes Region of New York's Adirondack Park regarding motorboating, nonmotorized boating, and personal watercraft use. The Theory of Planned Behavior (Ajzen, 1991) provides the theoretical basis for the study. The influence of resource- and recreation-related values on attitudes and beliefs is studied. A survey of the 58 recreation-related business owners identified in the Saranac Lakes Wild Forest was conducted. A response rate of 43 percent (25 questionnaires) was obtained. A path analysis was used to identify significant relationships between values, attitudes, and beliefs toward motorboating, nonmotorized boating, and personal watercraft use.
