dc.description.abstractMany nature preserves and natural areas require the use of active management practices to remove invasive species and promote the overall health of the preserve. While some research has investigated the public’s reaction to various management practices, few have focused on intensive habitat management contexts. Individuals’ reactions to the use of active management practices have serious implications for nature preserves as the public’s discontent with active management has previously delayed or impeded restoration work that led to a decline in ecosystem health. This thesis aims to explore how the use of active management practices influences individuals’ affective response to the managed landscape, level of attachment to the preserve, and intention to perform place-protective behaviors. Additionally, we quantitively examine the influence of other factors (i.e. knowledge, attitudes, perceived risk, responsibility, and identity) on individuals’ intention to perform place-protective behaviors.
