Proceedings from May 1985 workshop on valuing recreation resources. Includes 9 papers on 3 themes: (1) The Treatment of Site Attributes in the Modeling of Recreational Behavior. Attributes for other types of recreation include density and type of wildlife resources, congestion and physical site features. Three competing models are discussed: varying parameter, hedonic travel cost, and generalized indirect utility function. (2) Modeling Recreational Behavior in a Regional System of Sites. This set of papers explores how to account for the fact that an individual may visit only a subset of sites, and changes in characteristics at one site may lead to a change in sites visited. (3) The Definition and Estimation of Intrinsic Values Associated with Recreational Resources. These papers appraise our current understanding of how to model non-use values such as existence and option value.
