The College, The Community and Conservation. Report of a Conference (Washington, D.C., May 22-23, 1967).
Conservation Foundation, Washington, DC.
A conference on conservation education brought together leaders in college and university sponsored continuing education, professionals in conservation, planning, and design, and representatives of public and private organizations; discussion centered on the acceleration of application of now-known and feasible methods to the management of land, water, and air. Public agency assistance is available at the federal level in such programs as The Model Cities; at the state and regional level, by planning departments as well as resource agencies; and through action guides published by the National Association of Counties. Leaders, professionals, and organizations may need instruction and guidance but they can make contributions to the preparation and execution of Title I projects. To obtain federal support, one must have a strong program, supporting data, strong grass roots support particularly of those of high position, geographically distributed support, and proper timing. (Included are discussions on community responses, university faculty and administration attitudes, budgeting and project development, curriculum materials, and a special audiovisual approach; a bibliography and list of catalogs; and brief summaries of Title I and related projects.)
