Abstract
  • Rivers are becoming increasingly popular recreation resources as land and water use competition intensifies. The first river basin board in Nova Scotia was formed to manage the Shubenacadie-Stewiake Rivers under multiple use objectives. The board required an estimation of the recreation resources of the Stewiake River and after a review of pertinent literature the RIVERS method was chosen as the most appropriate technique for measuring recreation potential. The RIVERS method identified the recreation activities which were best suited to the river as a whole,(fishing, hunting, nature study) the activities best suited to each segment or land-water unit, the continuity of the activities potential throughout the river, and the overall recreation potential of each segment. Particular limitations of the RIVERS method were noted and include quantitative significance, weighting procedures, use in a pristine environment, and use where planning and management objectives already exists such as in state, provincial or federal natural rivers programs. There is an additional and immediate need for the preparation of a recreation management plan for the Stewiake River.
