About

Visitor use management is an integral part of any wilderness stewardship program, and relevant goals (desired conditions) and objectives (thresholds) are typically identified in a wilderness stewardship plan. Some plans even prescribe a specific response when certain thresholds are exceeded and wilderness character is threatened or degrading. This course is designed to help you select management strategies and actions to address visitor use impacts in wilderness, particularly if stewardship plan direction is largely absent or inadequate to the situation.
