Environmental Study Area Prototype, Idea Sketch No. 4.
Pueblo Regional Planning Commission, CO.
Development of an environmental study area in conjunction with a school landscaping project is outlined in this model. The Pueblo (Colorado) Regional Planning Commission and the Pueblo Beautiful Association determined the need for landscaping school grounds. Together with a school district committee of teachers and community leaders interested in the educational possibilities of the outdoor environment, a plan was drawn up incorporating environmental learning and landscape improvement. An interdisciplinary approach was advocated in employing the school site as a teaching aid. Procedures in plan development and implementation are enumerated in this prototype. Also included are sketch plans for an outdoor classroom, surrounded by areas for arid, semi-arid, foothill, and mountain plant life, rocks, and soils. Ultimately, the goal is enrichment of the learning process for elementary, junior high, and senior high school students and beautification of the urban environment in Pueblo. (BL)
