Title: Survey responses from Region 8: Are we achieving the public's objectives for forests and rangelands?

Author: Shields, Deborah J.; Haefele, Michelle; Lybecker, Donna L.;

Date: 2005

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: The survey on values, objectives, beliefs, and attitudes, implemented as a module of the National Survey on Recreation and the Environment, asked over 7,000 respondents nationwide about their values with respect to public lands, objectives for the management of these lands, beliefs about the role the USDA Forest Service should play in fulfilling those objectives, and attitudes about the job the agency has been doing. This report - one of a series of similar regional reports - shows respondents from the South (USDA Forest Service Region 8: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia) are somewhat more strongly in favor of increasing law enforcement efforts on public lands and restricting mineral development on forests and grasslands than respondents from the rest of the United States. Respondents from the South are also slightly less inclined toward preserving the ability to have a "wilderness" experience on forests and grasslands. Nationwide, as in the South, the most important objective was conserving and protecting forests and grassland watersheds.

Keywords: National Survey on Recreation and the Environment, forests, rangelands, grassland watersheds, South, law enforcement, mineral development
