This document is a review of almost 100 articles from 17 peer-reviewed journals on solutions to address barriers to minority populations in their visitation of parks, monuments, and other recreational areas. The review aims to address the problem of lack of representation of diverse audiences visiting natural public spaces. Barriers to overcome include lack of access, transportation, communication, fear of discrimination, language, lack of knowledge or experience, and lack of diversity of staff.
