  • Sustaining Civic Recreation: Understanding What Shapes Climbers’
           Contributions to Local Environmental Stewardship and Advocacy

      Authors: David P. Carter
      Abstract: A new form of recreation-focused collective action has grown over recent decades. Practitioners of shared outdoor recreation interests are coordinating to meet stewardship and advocacy goals. Such “civic recreation organizations” blur the lines between voluntary sport clubs, interest groups, and resource management, promising concentrated recreational benefits and offering the potential for positive impacts for other user groups and stakeholders, land managers, and perhaps even the general public. This study draws insights from leisure, voluntary contributions, and social exchange research to examine how the relationship between a recreationist and a civic recreation organization, recreational commitment, and the likelihood of receiving tangible benefits may impact recreationist’s propensity to contribute to civic recreation through organizational membership, donations, and volunteering. The analysis offers theoretical insights into how trust and recreational commitment might support sport-centered local civic environmentalism, with practical implications for civic recreation leaders.

  • Are We Creatures of Logic or Emotions' Investigating the Role of
           Attitudes, Worldviews, Emotions, and Knowledge Gain from Environmental
           Interpretation on Behavioural Intentions of Park Visitors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Clara-Jane Blye, Glen Hvenegaard, Elizabeth Halpenny
      Abstract: Environmental interpretation can improve sustainability by mitigating the negative impacts of nature-based recreation. However, we do not fully understand the psychological factors that influence interpretation’s efficacy in changing human behaviours. Specifically, the role of emotions has been understudied within environmental psychology and nature-based recreation. This study, therefore, provides further insight into the psychological processes driving pro-environmental behavioural intentions among overnight visitors attending personal interpretation programs in provincial parks in Alberta, Canada. In 2018 and 2019, we surveyed 763 attendees of personal interpretation events. We used latent variable structural regression modeling to test the hypothesized relationships between ecological worldview, attitudes, emotions, and pro-environmental behaviours. As predicted, there were positive relationships between worldviews, affective and cognitive attitudes, and emotions; these variables and knowledge gain were positively associated with pro-environmental behaviours. Findings suggest that interpretation should focus programming on the affective elements of communication, target personal meaning such as responsibility to act, and continue to transmit knowledge.

  • A Case Study of Millennials’ Attitudes Toward U.S. National Parks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Troy S. Ruiz, David G. Havlick
      Abstract: Visitation to some of the most popular national parks in the United States has surged in recent years, but in many national park units, attendance has declined even as the U.S. population increases. Changing demographics, patterns of visitation, maintenance needs, and inconsistent federal support raise questions about national parks’ relevance to younger generations. In particular, the attitudes of the U.S. Millennial generation are a key concern for park managers and supporters. We evaluate the views of a sample of Millennials toward America’s national parks and find that many lack basic knowledge about national parks, yet still say they value and appreciate the national park system. Land managers should respond to knowledge gaps of Millennials and pursue outreach that strategically consolidates the support of this and younger generations for a national parks system that is expected to provide ecological and cultural benefits for current and future generations.

  • Sustainable Land Management on the Pacific Crest Trail: A Qualitative
           Investigation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Marni Goldenberg, Keri Schwab, Terra Bilhorn, June Murray
      Abstract: The Pacific Crest Trail is a National Scenic Trail that runs from Mexico to Canada. Use of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) has increased in the past 20 years. It is important to understand how an increase in use can impact the environment and sustainable practices, land management practices, and the hiker experience. Participants included 15 land managers in California and 25 thru-hikers who completed the PCT. In-depth interviews were conducted, and participants were asked questions about hiker interactions, trail angels, land manager interactions, and the permitting process. Data were transcribed verbatim and coded by three independent coders to reach a 90% inter-rater reliability. Emerging themes included: human impacts, permitting and education, and rule enforcement. Hikers also talked about the benefits of in-person education and the need for consistent communication between thru-hikers and land managers. Recommendations for sustainable practices include improvements to the permitting system, education, enforcement, and communication.

  • Leave No Trace and Sustainability Education: Taking a Dialectical Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Chris North, Hannah Berning, Te Hurinui Karaka-Clarke, B. Derrick Taff
      Abstract: Leave No Trace (LNT) is globally the most widely accepted minimum impact program and has been linked to behavior change and the maintenance of a range of ecological measures. Critiques of LNT have emerged, including that LNT ignores wider impacts that contribute to climate change and diverse world views. Many outdoor education students carefully follow LNT practices. When students encounter these critiques, they often conclude either that LNT is effective and the detractors are misplaced or that LNT should be abandoned, thereby avoiding deep engagement. Education must prepare students for the contested project of creating a sustainable future. We argue that LNT shows considerable promise as a context for learning through dialectical approaches where students must engage with divergent articles and examples. LNT can be used to help students understand that taking informed action is important. LNT can also be used to show that there are no innocent actions.

  • "Going Green": Investigating Environmental Sustainability Practices in
           Camp Organizations across the United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lincoln R. Larson, Josselyn Rivera-Zuniga, Barry A. Garst, Samuel Keith, Danny Sudman, Laurie Browne
      Abstract: Our study explored current environmental sustainability practices of U.S. camps as well as the motivations and barriers influencing integration of sustainable operational approaches. Using a web survey of camp organizations in Spring 2021, we identified participation in sustainable actions across five broad categories: waste management, sustainability education and communication, natural resource and wildlife conservation, energy and water consumption, and purchasing and procurement. Many camp organizations already engaged in sustainable practices – especially with respect to waste management and sustainability education – but almost all camps wanted to do more. Camp organizations placed higher priority on environmental and social motivations for sustainability than economic reasons. Inadequate financial and/or technological resources was the largest perceived barrier to sustainability, though lack of awareness and capacity-building assistance was also a constraint. Results highlight strong interest in sustainability across the camp industry and reveal multiple ways to realize that potential.

  • The Role of Triple Loop Learning in Fostering Future Conservation Leaders:
           Assessing High-Impact Practices

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Eddie Hill, Chris A. B. Zajchowski, Hans-Peter Plag, Tatyana Lobova
      Abstract: Higher education institutions identify and support practices that enhance student engagement and increase student success. In this article, we explored student learning facilitated through High Impact Practices (HIPs) (i.e., in-class undergraduate research, service learning, internships) integrated in the Sustainability & Conservation Leadership Minor at Old Dominion University. In this new transdisciplinary minor, which was developed in partnership with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, cohorts of students share three mandatory courses, including a capstone internship. Post-internship reflections were coded using triple loop learning theory, which identifies individuals’ values, beliefs, and ideologies. Results indicate students identified the internship as essential for career discernment and agency literacy, as well as inter- and intra-personal awareness to address sustainability challenges. The results underline that the impact of HIPs can be amplified if multiple HIPs are integrated in a comprehensive program addressing real-world problems through experiential learning within and outside of the classroom.

  • How do Outdoor Recreationists Perceive the State of the Environment and Do
           Interpretive Programs Make a Difference'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Angela Mallette, Ryan Plummer
      Abstract: Environmental interpretation provides visitors with positive experiences in nature while managing their impacts. Existing research has concentrated on the influence of interpretive programs on visitor knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours. Little empirical research exists on how visitors perceive their environment. In this research we examine the effect of environmental interpretation on visitors’ perceptions of the environment. The study took place in the Niagara Glen Nature Reserve, Canada. A survey is administered to visitors on self-guided experiences and visitors receiving two different interpretive programs. Perceptions are compared to ecological data. Visitors rated conditions higher than ecological data, regardless of participation in an interpretive program. There was no significant influence of an interpretive program on perceptions. Findings from this pilot study highlight the need for interpretive programs to examine their effectiveness of achieving its outcomes as well as the benefits of using a reference such as ecological data.
