The Texas Water Education Network Directory.
Texas Water Development Board, Austin.
The resource persons and program descriptions in this directory came from answers supplied in a 1988 survey mailed to 135 entities having some relationship to or interest in promoting the distribution of water education materials suitable for use in Texas elementary or secondary schools. This directory includes an update on the programs submitted in 1988 plus some information on additional programs that were created or located during 1989 and 1990. The materials described include classroom curriculum approved by the Texas Education Agency and correlated to the essential elements, comic books, pamphlets, dramas, speakers bureaus, workshops, seminars, and field trip opportunities. Environmental education materials and resources have also been included since water education is often included under this larger heading. The listings are in alphabetical order under the type of water organization or institution supplying the materials or programs. A contact person is listed for each entry. Sections include: (1) Associations, Organizations, and Foundations; (2) River Authorities; (3) Cities; (4) Water and Utility Districts; (5) Regional, State, and Federal Agencies; (6) Institutions of Higher Learning; and (7) Commercial Resources.
