Summarized in this descriptive brochure are the establishment and current development of the environmental education program in the U. S. Office of Education. An account of the initial planning and financial support systems forms the introduction followed by major emphasis on representative projects for fiscal year 1971. Examples include multidisciplinary studies in the formal school system, informal education projects, museums and libraries, state planning organizations, and diverse action groups. The appendix outlines how 1971 grants were made, charts the three-phase proposal selection process, and draws tables and a map for distribution of proposals submitted and grants awarded. (BL)
