Economic Impact of State Parks, Forests and Natural Resources under the Management of Department of Environmental Protection
AbstractThis CCEA project for the state's Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) details how outdoor activities on state lands have an economic impact of more than $1 billion a year, from expenditures by residents and visitors on a variety of outdoor activities including camping, boating, fishing and hunting. The study highlights that for every dollar the state spends on the state park system, it receives an estimated $38 in economic activity. This study was released to the public by DEEP in December 2011.
