Improving Awareness of Outdoor Recreation Research by Keeping Good Company: Editors' Notes


  • Andrew J. Bobilya Montreat College


On behalf of the editorial team, I am pleased to present this issue of the Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education and Leadership. The journal continues to receive a variety of papers– all addressing various aspects of outdoor recreation, education and leadership. A paper by Hayashi and Ewert begins the issue by investigating the development of emotional intelligence among participants in a Wilderness Education Association course. Their study found that participation in an outdoor leadership program did elevate levels of emotional intelligence. Their work continues to add to our understanding of this construct and its application in outdoor leadership.
