Off to the Northeastern Recreation Research Symposium this weekend! Yes, it is my annual springtime conference on Lake George at the Sagamore. A great venue for the conference and a place I'd never be able to afford in the summer. The organizers are expecting close to 200 participants this year and as always, the USDA-Forest Service will publish the Proceedings.
The research at this conference serves as much of the readings I use in Recreation Geography. In fact, when I first taught rec geog online back in 1997, most of the course used readings from the conference. Since I am doing the online version in the fall 2010 semester, it is likely this government document will still remain an important part of the course.
