FREP Recreation Monitoring

FRPA Recreation MonitoringRecreation, one of the eleven resource values identified in the Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA), consists of two components:

1. Recreation resource management (the identification, protection and management of the provincial forest recreation resource), and

2. Recreation use management (the provision of safe, sanitary, socially acceptable and environmentally sound recreation sites and recreation trails for public use).

There are three categories of recreation sites and trails:

  1. Managed with fees
  2. Managed without fees
  3. User maintained

FREP evaluations explore the following question:

"Are Forest Service recreation sites across British Columbia meeting baseline standards for facilities and maintenance, and able to provide safe, sanitary and environmentally sound recreation experiences?"
