Teaching Conservation Through Outdoor Education Areas.
Forest Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
This guide is for teachers (K-12) interested in developing and using outdoor education areas. Student participation is presented as the key to a successful program. A discussion of what can be done by outdoor education programs is presented. The guide suggests sites to be chosen in terms of accessability, size, attractiveness, safety, drinking water, and sanitary facilities. Trails are to be developed on these sites with zones for distinctive site features or special areas. Station signs developed on these trails are separated into three types (1) identification writeups, (2) station writeups, (3) special area writeups. Each type of station writeup is explained and illustrated with examples. A special bibliography is included on the development and use of outdoor education areas. (BB)
