Description: The management of feral hogs surrounding the Big Thicket National Preserve (BTNP) in southeastern Texas requires that National Park Service (NPS) staff and stakeholders manage resource issues collaboratively. Past research has indicated that place bonding can be the common ground upon which managers and stakeholders develop social trust with one another to form a basis for collaborative management. However, such research has not examined the different types of social trust (e.g., trust in local managers versus trust in the entire agency) that exist. The present study tested the hypothesis that the relationship between respondents' place bonding and their trust in BTNP managers to manage feral hogs is moderated by whether or not the respondents trusted the agency (i.e., NPS) as a whole. The results of the analysis failed to confirm the hypothesis, but the place belongingness dimension of place bonding was positively related to trust in BTNP NPS staff.
