Recreation and Wildlife Management


The ever-increasing demand for outdoor recreation opportunity has challenged traditional approaches to wildlife management, creating a need to develop new ways to accommodate recreation development while still protecting wildlife and other valuable resources.  Join Brock McCormick, Wildlife Biologist for the U.S. Forest Service for a discussion of outdoor recreation, its impacts on wildlife species and how we might balance the interests and benefits of recreational users with other resource needs and land uses.
