Americans Outdoors PDF Summary

An advisory commission was charged by the President of the United States to review public and private outdoor recreation opportunities, policies, and programs and to make recommendations for the future. The body of this publication is the final report of the Commission on Americans Outdoors which was delivered on January 28, 1987. Findings are presented in four major sections. These include: (1) "Americans and the Outdoors" (addressing the problems, benefits, and possibilities for outdoor recreation ); (2) "Americans: the People" (stressing the need for an outdoor ethic and for action and involvement in improving services); (3) "Outdoors: the Resources" (identifying needs, initiatives, and management concerns); and (4) "Making It Work" (highlighting the roles and necessity of partnerships, public policy, community action, strong leadership, and funding strategies). A summary of key issues and recommendations as well as a summary of the proceedings of the National Conference on Recreation and the American City are included as appendices. The full text of 12 selected case studies which describe innovative approaches to solving problems and maximizing opportunities to protect resources and expand recreation opportunities are presented.
