Environmental Practice, the New Conservation.
Griffith, Charles J.; And Others
Environmental concern and involvement in solving environmental problems are the themes emphasized in this handbook. It offers suggestions for citizen groups who wish to contribute more effectively to a better environment. They are encouraged to start at the local level, where pollution and environmental degradation begin. If they want others to act and live more compatibly with the environment and if they want to influence others' value judgements, they must show by their own examples that this is possible. EP (Environmental Practice) is discussed in this manner for individuals, children, teachers, schools, the community, and government. Several survey and question sheets are included in the appendix on: environmental issues, water body usage, effluents, run-off, lake shore development attitudes, land usage, and community compatibility. There is also a model ordinance establishing municipal environmental/conservation commissions and a citizen action checklist. (BL)
