Outdoor recreation is an important aspect of the American culture, with a central tenant that all citizens have the right to enjoy the public wildlands. The present study analyzed African American wildland outdoor recreation behavior and found that this segment of the population, as a proportion, tended to participate in wildland outdoor recreation activities to a significantly lesser extent than their White counterparts. The findings suggest important public policy implications.
