Abstract

Effective inventory, management, and planning for recreation resources depend upon knowing why persons choose certain environments to attain specific goals, and what elements in those environments facilitate goal-attainment. Research focused on relating motives for participation to specific components in the environment has had only limited success. This paper proposes an alternative organization of the motive-behaviour/environment relationship intended to improve the predictive power of this line of research. The process of recreation behaviour is seen as the attempt to attain a desirable state of consciousness which is experienced as satisfaction in recreation.-Authors
