Information was obtained from St. Joe River landowners regarding their attitudes and opinions of the proposed inclusion of the river in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Questionnaires were mailed to 327 landowners whose properties are located within the land area which could be affected by Wild and Scenic Rivers restrictions. A total of 54.4% of the landowners responded. The majority of landowners were either strongly or mildly in favor of including the entire river upstream from Avery in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Oposition to classifying the lower St. Joe River was based on landowners' perceptions of the degree to which Wild and Scenic River restrictions would have effects.
