Adopt a Stream.
Friends of Environmental Education Society of Alberta (Edmonton).
This environmental education program is designed to increase awareness among junior high school students of stream ecosystems and those habitats which comprise the ecosystems adjacent to streams. The teaching content of the manual is presented in two major sections. The first section provides information and background material for the group leader. Discussion of the factors that affect stream habitat and water quality is supplemented by case studies that can be used as the basis for a debate of positions represented in the studies. The second section provides four sets of activities through which students explore and understand stream and riparian habitat and the effects of resource development. Activities are presented for the five levels through which the program is developed: concept, awareness, investigation, impact, and action. Three appendices contain a glossary of 120 terms, a list of 24 information and funding sources, and a list of curriculum and program links in Alberta. (MDH)
