A cooperative aid agreement was arranged during the summer, 1974, between the Department of Forestry at Iowa State University and the Pacific Forest and Range Experiment Station of the U.S. Forest Service to prepare a state-of-the-arts report on outdoor recreation in Alaska. In addition, a recreation research project* is to be conducted to provide information for recreation planners and managers in making resource decisions. As project leader, it was necessary for me to spend considerable time in Alaska, familiarizing myself with the existing programs in resources so that I could prepare the state-of-the-arts report and make recommendations regarding a recreation program for the U.S. Forest Service in Alaska.
