Résumé
Increasing demands for outdoor recreation areas and overuse of many popular areas necessitates more effective land management and additional recreation land0 One obvious source of additional recreation land is the seventeen million acres of chaparral in Arizona and California* At present, this land is ignored for recreation use and is only inefficiently used for grazing and water yield0 Questionnaire results are used in this study to evaluate how the activity of removing chaparral and planting grass — chaparral conversion — affects recreational potential in a chaparral area. Results indicated that chaparral areas can be more useful for recreation. Chaparral areas can help fulfill the outdoor needs of the American people and thus aid in alleviating the overcrowding and overuse of more popular areas*

Mots clés : Chaparral ecology. ; Outdoor recreation.
