Missouri Conservation Frontiers Program Guide. A Conservation Action Program of the Missouri Department of Conservation.
Crawford, Hollis D.
"Missouri Conservation Frontiers" is an activity-oriented program dealing with conservation of natural resources. The program, designed for youth between the ages of 8 and 16, provides a system of activities and awards which can be adapted in any classroom, youth group, or organization in Missouri. In addition, teachers may involve their students in the program as the award component of the "Learning with Otis" elementary school program. This guide includes: (1) a description of the program; (2) instructions for beginning the program; (3) a description of the four levels for achievement in the program (and the requirements for attaining each level); and (4) the schedule of merit points. This schedule (which makes up the major portion of the guide) is a list of 73 self-improvement and activity projects which participants may complete. Although most activities are designed to be completed individually by the participant, several require some assistance from parents, leaders, teachers, or other individuals. A sample pledge card which students sign to enroll in the program is included. (JN)
