A Guide to Minnesota Environmental Education Areas.
Fisher, Wes, Comp.; Gruchow, Nancy, Comp.
More than 400 areas in Minnesota, useful as sites for environmental studies, are catalogued in this guide. They include state parks and waysides, state forests, state wildlife management areas, waterfowl production areas, national forests, nature centers and preserves, metropolitan, county and city parks, outdoor education school sites, school forests, private conservation farms and campgrounds, private camps, historic sites and monuments, university and college study areas, Boy Scout and Girl Scout camps and foundation sites. Introductory sections elaborate upon the wide range of possible study sites outside the classroom and enumerate factors which should be considered while teaching in natural areas. For a general overview of the state, four maps show the soil types, bedrock formations, general landforms, and forest vegetation. The major section of the guide compiles the areas in alphabetical order by counties. Each entry provides a short description of the area or site together with its official name, when it is open, size, type of area, location, and source to contact for additional information. A glossary of terms and index to all areas concludes the book. (BL)
