Limits of Acceptable Change (LAC) Benefits Based Management vs. Best Management Practices

Public Participation Multiple Use

Recreation Opportunity Spectrum (ROS) Limits of Acceptable Change

(G. H. Stankey, D. N. Cole, R. C. Lucas, M. E. Petersen. & S. S. Frissell, 1985)

Based upon a set of baseline data To know the area before development An effort to prevent desensitization

Reflects biological, physical, and social conditions The social demands are what most

influence the biological & physical The Limits of Acceptable Change (LAC)

planning system Response to growing recognition in the U .S. that attempts to define and implement

recreational carrying capacities were both excessively reductionistic and failing. Carrying capacity concept itself was based

on biological models. Such models did not transfer well into ecosystems being managed for human

benefits based primarily on recreational experiences

LAC was based on the recognition that ( 1) specific objectives were needed to identify what it was that management was to protect,

(2) change is always present in nature-dominated systems, (3) any recreational use leads to some change,

(4) management is therefore confronted with the question of how much change is acceptable, and (5) monitoring of the outcomes of management is

needed to determine if actions were effective. (McCool,

1989. Paper presented at Workshop on Impact Management in Marine Parks, sponsored by Maritime Institute of Malaysia, August 13-14, 1996, Kuala Lumpur, MALA YSIA)

Benefits Based Management Similar to LAC Assesses a range of benefits of the site

Includes biological, physical, & social Determines highest priorities of site through rankings (socially determined) and manages

based on those benefits. Multiple Use

Coined by Gifford Pinchot An effort to provide multiple compatible uses for an area

It is not everyones right to use the same area.
