Evaluating household-level relationships between environmental views and outdoor recreation: The Teton Valley case

Publication Abstract

Peterson, M.N., V. Hull, A.G. Mertig, and Jianguo Liu. 2008. "Evaluating household-level relationships between environmental views and outdoor recreation: The Teton Valley case." Leisure Sciences, 30(4): 293-305.

Outdoor recreation may foster positive environmental views among participants and their nonparticipating household members, but little research has addressed this hypothesis at the household level. We address this gap with a case study evaluating both the individual-and household-level relationship between outdoor recreation and environmental views using the new ecological paradigm scale (NEP). Results suggest NEP relates positively to appreciative outdoor recreation participation and negatively to nonappreciative outdoor recreation participation for participants and their household members. Future research should focus on how household dynamics mediate the relationship between environmental views and outdoor recreation.
