National Park Service (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.; National Education Association, Washington, DC.; Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
This publication suggests ways to use the treasure of places and things existing in the national parks, in schools, and in communities for effective programs in environmental education. The report begins with a discussion of the use of the school facility and site as a learning laboratory with pictures and text to illustrate how various schools put school sites to good use. Next, the report describes the use of community facilities for environmental education; examples of urban, suburban, and rural areas are provided. Regional centers are then discussed and both existing nonresident and resident centers and their programs are described. The document concludes with some suggestions for planning resident centers and some examples of partnership arrangements between school boards and various agencies to finance resident programs in environmental education.
