About the Author


The Institute of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism at Utah State University does research, outreach, and teaching focused on outdoor recreation and tourism management — inside Utah and beyond its borders. Our work focuses on the social and economic trade-offs associated with providing outdoor recreation opportunities on public lands. Since our founding in 1998, we’ve been awarded several millions of dollars in grants, maintained an active outreach program, and trained some of the nation’s leading outdoor recreation and resource managers.
