Just because an activity takes place outside, that does not make it an outdoor recreation activity (Cordes & Hutson, 2015).
The purpose of this assignment is to provide insight and understanding into what constitutes an outdoor recreation experience. Just because an activity occurs in the out-of-door, that does not automatically qualify as an outdoor recreation experience. The focus is the activities related to nature. Golf, tennis, football, motocross, shooting range, or visiting a zoo would not qualify as an outdoor recreation experience because the environment is artificial and nature plays a minimal role
