Advances in environmental education by professional and science-oriented organizations are enumerated in this newsletter. An effort is made to describe the work being done by large and representative groups whose headquarters are not located in the Nation's capital and whose principle concerns include curriculum planning and preparation of teachers for directing environmental studies. Summaries of program objectives, activities, and materials of large scale environment-oriented programs are provided for: (1) Anthropology Curriculum Project, University of Georgia, Athens; (2) Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS), University of Colorado, Boulder; (3) Environmental Studies Project, American Geological Institute; (4) Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS), Florida State University, Tallahassee; (5) Science Curriculum Improvement Study (SCIS), University of California, Berkeley; and (6) Institute for Environmental Education, Cleveland, Ohio. Several local level programs are also reviewed. In addition, the Group for Environmental Education project, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is portrayed as it relates to the social studies field. (BL)
