A Guide to Establishing Environmental Education Programs in Municipal Parks.
Bradley, Kenneth; Stanley, Robert
This guide is designed to help those in the field of Parks and Recreation who wish to develop an environmental learning program in their parks with the cooperation of the local schools. The guide reviews an environmental learning program which was developed in Forest Park, Springfield (Massachusetts), and provides guidelines which could be considered in the establishment of a similar environmental program within a municipal park. The guidelines are designed to facilitate the individual needs of any particular community; they are not step-by-step directives. The guide covers such topics as philosophy and objectives, establishment of a program, curriculum, personnel, funding, legalities, evaluation, and resources. Each topic is dealt with in general terms, followed by a specific example from the Springfield program. (TK)
