Description: Preliminary results were examined from a self-administered questionnaire regarding the relationships between personal values, individual characteristics, and depreciative behaviors. Respondents were queried about socio-demographics, reasons for visiting forest recreation areas, reasons for liking and disliking the forest, activities witnessed while visiting the forest, activities and occurrences that bothered the respondent, depreciative behaviors engaged in, and suggested penalties. Interesting racial variations were revealed in several areas of inquiry. Findings are useful to resource managers and researchers seeking insight into depreciative behaviors.
