County Extension agents and professional foresters in four Mid-Atlantic States were surveyed to determine the types of requests they receive for specific alternative income opportunities, their clientele demographics, the types of information they need, and how they would like to receive it. A significant percentage of county agents received requests in the areas of forest farming and utilization and recreational access enterprises. They also expressed a greater interest in gaining more knowledge in the area of recreational access compared to foresters. While both audiences preferred printed media to gain this knowledge, county agents had a greater interest in electronic media.
