Description: This chapter sets the context for the following sociocultural sections of the synthesis by providing information on the broader social, cultural, and economic patterns in the Sierra Nevada and southern Cascade Range. Demographic influences surrounding population change, including those accounted for through amenity migration, are examined. Social and cultural concerns surrounding place meanings and place attachments are reviewed next, including potential influences on responses to natural resource management. Managing for resilience includes effectively applying a “triple bottom line approach,” presented in this chapter through a discussion of recreation and tourism, one of the ecosystem services of importance in the assessment region.
