Daigle examines the benefits associated with outdoor recreation. His current research focuses on public recreational access on private lands in the northeastern U.S. and examines the social and cultural impacts of climate change on certain outdoor activities and groups of people. Daigle is also advancing strategies that may enable Maine’s three native ash species — white, green and black/brown — to co-exist with the emerald ash borer in Maine’s forest landscape. He teaches courses designed to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the social values, human behaviors, social conflicts, and public processes associated with recreation resources management.
