Abstract on An Assessment Of Participation In Outdoor Recreation Activities

This study is on an assessment of participation in outdoor recreation activities. The total population for the study is 200 residents in Uyo, Akwa ibom state. The researcher used questionnaires as the instrument for the data collection. Descriptive Survey research design was adopted for this study. A total of 133 respondents made married men, public servants, students and youths were used for the study. The data collected were presented in tables and analyzed using simple percentages and frequencies

Chapter One on An Assessment Of Participation In Outdoor Recreation Activities

INTRODUCTION

  • Background of the study

Recreation is as old as man and everybodyneeds  it.  This is due to its vast and fundamental importance. It plays an important role in physical, economic and socio-cultural development of mankind (Okoli 2001). It is for this reason that Obateru (2003) expresses the need for Nigerians to participate in recreation activities in order to improve their health, facilitate their economic output and also to make worthy use of leisure time. Recreation activities according to Atemie (1997) are an important ingredient for long life. It is for this reason that Straus (1998), a medical educator emphasized that recreation is as important as eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. It has the ability in helping to deal with stress in life, by changing the focus of attention from those stressful situations. Today’s young participants in outdoor recreation activities are tomorrow’s adult outdoor enthusiasts and conservationists, but sadly fewer and fewer youth are leaving outdoors each year to indoor recreation activities. In Nigeria however, it has been observed that the culture of participating in recreation activities consciously is relatively low. This may not be unconnected with the economic circumstance prevalent in the country. Results of recent researches into the recreation activities of Nigerians in different walks of life (Makasi, 1985) Imazobi, (1988) seem to indicate that certain unexpected factors prevent most Nigerians from engaging in recreation activities. While Nigeria is blessed with several abundant recreation activities such as swimming, football, lawn tennis, boating, picnicking, basketball, polo playing, TV viewing and several other activities which could be participated in by Nigerians. As part of this national assessment of outdoor recreation trends, we have taken a look at participation patterns and levels of participation across activities and across segments of our society. The primary source of data is the National Survey on Recreation and the Environment (NSRE). The NSRE is the latest in the continuing series of National Recreation Surveys conducted by the federal government since 1960 (Cordell, 1995). The NSRE covers participation in over 80 activities, ranging from casual walking outdoors to more challenging activities such as rock climbing and white water canoeing. This chapter on outdoor recreation participation first looks at national participation in land-, water-, and snow- and ice-based recreation activities. Long-term trends are covered, tracking some activities back to the original national survey done in 1960. To examine geographic patterns, differences in population percentages across Census regions and divisions are explored, with a focus on activities with the greatest differences. To further explore geographic patterns, selected activities are mapped at county scale to show more detailed patterns of participation across and within regions. Intensity of participation is described using days and trips away from home as the measure of involvement in outdoor activities. Participation differences among social groups in American society are examined, and constraints to participation described.

1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Results of recent research into the recreation activities of Nigerians in different walks of life (Makasi, 1985) Imazobi, (1988) seem to indicate that certain unexpected factors prevent most Nigerians from engaging in recreation activities. While Nigeria is blessed with several abundant recreation activities such as swimming, football, lawn tennis, boating, picnicking, basketball, polo playing, TV viewing and several other activities which could be participated in by Nigerians. On this background the researcher wants to investigate an assessment of participation in outdoor recreation activities.

  • OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY

The objectives of the study are;

  1. To assess the important of participating in outdoor recreation activities
  2. To ascertain what prevent Nigerians from participating in outdoor recreation activities
  3. To ascertain the participation patterns and levels of participation across activities and across segments of our society

1.4 RESEARCH HYPOTHESES

For the successful completion of the study, the following research hypotheses were formulated by the researcher;

H0 there is no important of participating in outdoor recreation activities

H1:  there is important of participating in outdoor recreation activities

H02:  there are no participation patterns and levels of participation across activities and across segments of our society

H2: there are participation patterns and levels of participation across activities and across segments of our society

1.5 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This study will give clear insight on an assessment of participation in outdoor recreation activities. The study will be beneficial to students and the general public. It will also serve as a reference to others researcher that will embark on this topic

1.6 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE TOPIC

The scope of the study covers an assessment of participation in outdoor recreation activities. The researcher encounters some constrain which limited the scope of the study;

  1. a) AVAILABILITY OF RESEARCH MATERIAL: The research material available to the researcher is insufficient, thereby limiting the study
  2. b) TIME: The time frame allocated to the study does not enhance wider coverage as the researcher has to combine other academic activities and examinations with the study.
  3. c) Organizational privacy: Limited Access to the selected auditing firm makes it difficult to get all the necessary and required information concerning the activities
