Abstract:
This study examines the wilderness use in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. A tabulation of the Backcountry Use Permits reveals the usage of different parts of the monument wilderness. Along with a discussion of the National Park Service Visitor Survey, the tabulation explains the visitor usage in terms of desirable and undesirable recreational features. A review of other Federal Agencies' Wilderness Management Plans and Proposals provides an overview of problems, deficiencies, and operational management strategies of Wilderness Management. Finally, a series of recommendations are offered to assist Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in the development of a workable Wilderness Management Plan and to help the visitor understand the effects of the recreational visit on the fragile desert environment.
