Description: Abstract - Arkansas occupies a unique and important place in the history of New Perspectives and Ecosystem Management. An historic visit to the Ouachita National Forest by Senator David Pryor (D-Arkansas) in August 1990, thereafter called the walk in the woods, served as an opportunity to shift the Ouachita’s style of management in a manner that has served as a model for other national forests in the Nation. This paper summarizes limits of the multiple-use concept, outlines some important elements that constitute the basis of the New Perspectives program, and discusses from the author's perspective the evolution of the Ecosystem Management concept while he served as Chief of the USDA Forest Service.
