Description: The authors examine recreation resources and opportunities by the four types of providers: Federal, State, local governments, and the private sector. They discuss the trend of partnerships in the provision of outdoor recreation opportunities, especially two types that emerged in the 1990’s: Scenic Byways and Watchable Wildlife opportunities. Where possible, the authors discuss the changes and trends in recreation resources since the mid-1980’s. Those trends, in turn, point to anticipated future trends. Brief articles by 36 contributors from Government agencies, environmental organizations, and recreation industry groups address issues and trends that have emerged over the past decade and offer their outlooks for the future. The chapter provides indexes that describe categories of recreation resources and how they have changed over the past 10 years. The authors also present observations about the outdoor recreation resource base in the United States by summarizing the current status, trends, and future outlook.

Keywords: outdoor recreation, resources, opportunities, trends
