Description

See also: Managing Visitor Use in Natural Areas, Sustainable Human SystemsAs more people choose to live, work, and play along our nation’s coasts, coastal and marine resource management professionals are challenged with balancing the changing demands of the public with the management of resources under their care. This workshop provided an overview of the human dimensions of coastal and marine protected area management, and offered examples of visitor use and associated impacts to natural resources and visitor experiences, and demonstrated applications to help managers address the people side of recreation resource management. The workshop featured speakers addressing topics related to visitor use planning, recreational impacts to wildlife, and regional visitor use monitoring. Most of an entire day of the workshop saw participants working together to solve real world regional visitor use problems.
