No 6732, 2008 Annual Meeting, February 2-6, 2008, Dallas, Texas from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Efficient land allocation decisions and resource management requires knowledge of non-market benefits. Using travel cost and contingent valuation data from on-site interviews and secondary data on visitation, this study will value a national park in Columbia.
