Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to illustrate, through a case study description, the practical application of the CVM method to recreation evaluation in an actual planning study. The case study description is meant to serve as a practical guide and, therefore, emphasizes what was done more than the concepts behind the techniques used. It is not intended to be a detailed guide of the entire planning process, but rather highlights activities or outcomes from this process that involved the development, conduct and application of the CVM method to recreation demand and benefit estimation, to illustrate the development of regional valuation models, and to describe the potential transferability of the procedures andor findings of this case study to other planning applications. Ten bayous in Texas were used
