This is our quarterly magazine. We have members across the continent, with chapters representing 25 states and provinces. We fight to maintain and enhance the backcountry values.

      Introduction. Protected areas are a major mechanism for biodiversity conservation (Lockwood et al. ).They are also popular destinations for a range of tourism and recreation activities, with visitation to many protected areas increasingly popular including in the Andes (Bury ; Balmford et al. ; Barros et al. ).Visitor use of these areas can result in a range Cited by: Nature based recreation such as wildlife viewing, hiking, running, cycling, canoeing, horse riding and dog walking can have negative environmental effects.

    This text brings together disparate bodies of ecological knowledge pertinent to countryside areas used for recreation. It summarizes our understanding of recreation as an ecological factor and outlines the problems needing further research, for the benefit of students and others concerned with countryside conservation. Information is drawn from several countries and the text .   Given the increase in interest in developing recreation on public lands, and the increasing responsibility of public land managers for maintaining suitable habitat for wildlife species, it is important to gain understanding about how trails affect breeding birds, and if the effect is negative, to tease apart the various specific aspects of trails.

One notable finding is that wildlife response to hikers vs. mountain bikers was identical, so the actual presence of humans is what counts, not the type of recreation. An even more sobering finding was that trails create a “corridor of impact” wider than the trail itself: the wildlife reacted to humans meters or more away on either side.
