Description: In this chapter we begin to assess the potential effects of climate change on future outdoor recreation in the South, a region spanning 13 states from Virginia to Texas (Chapter 1). Our goal is to provide some useful insights about future natural resource-based recreation-an important nontimber product derived from southern forests-in the face of climate change. We develop and present projections of participation and consumption for 10 traditional natural resource-based recreation activities in the South. The work builds on previous outdoor recreation forecasts (Bowker et al. in press) by explicitly incorporating climate, along with population growth, land-use changes, and future socioeconomic conditions into demand models and projections.
