Description: In the world, and in the United States there is growing concern about the future of natural land and water, including forests. A part of this concern is to assure a continued source of opportunity for outdoor recreation and forest-based tourism. In 1994, 12 countries assembled to conceptualize a set of indicators for monitoring the conservation and sustainable management of temperate and boreal forests around the world. In 1995, through what is called the Santiago Declaration, the governments of these 12 countries endorsed a final set of indicators for use by their respective policymakers to assess forest sustainability at each of their own national levels. Three of these indicators describe forest recreation and tourism supply and demand conditions. The following paper is based in large measure on the recent report for one of these indicators, that is, use and trends in use of forests for outdoor recreation. Forest-based outdoor recreation has long been and increasingly is a major component of tourism in this country.
