A Field Guide to Outdoor Learning in Powell County, Biome Descriptions, Field Activities, Field Sites.
Powell County High School, Deer Lodge, MT.
Serving as a guide to the outdoor areas of Powell County, Montana, and the surrounding area, this resource book is useful for teachers who wish to explore the out-of-doors with their students, particularly those interested in nature studies. Its aim is to produce a citizenry that is knowledgeable concerning the biophysical environment and its related problems. Three major sections constitute the guide. Section 1, Biome Descriptions, gives a general and detailed description of plant communities in Powell County followed by their associated soil profiles. Section 2 offers a summary of field sites. Underdeveloped sites throughout the county are suggested which allow for study of water environments, biomes, soil areas, fire burns, clear cuts, pollution areas, animals, range management, and geology. Established outdoor environmental areas in six communities are then covered in detail. This includes a general description of the area, choice of location, pictures and maps, and a site analysis chart of biotic and abiotic features. Sixty field activities which can be completed at the outdoor sites are enumerated in Section 3. Each activity gives topic of study, grade level, site(s) in which it may be undertaken, procedures, and related information. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
