Dr. Bell presents research on environmental change and recreation demand

Professor Kathleen Bell presented joint work Assistant Professor Caroline Noblet  “Environmental change and recreation demand: Assessing interactions between beach width and beach recreation demand” at the W4133 (Costs and Benefits of Natural Resources on Public and Private Lands) Annual Meeting, in Santa Fe, New Mexico February 20-22, 2019. Bell and Noblet collaborated with Maine’s Coastal Program to collect data at Popham Beach State Park. Bell and Noblet’s ongoing research suggests beach users are responding to shoreline change at Popham Beach State Park in different ways and have different views about the preferred management response to such change.
