This guide focuses on the conservation plan for an outdoor laboratory. Although the plan focuses specifically on Seaman Outdoor Education Laboratory, the concepts could be applied to any natural area including parks, farms, and school grounds. Along with an introduction and justification, the guide includes the conservation plan that serves as the blueprint for the use and treatment of the land to be used; it was developed on the basis of intended land use. The conservation plan includes the plan map and a general overview of the area. A natural resources inventory that looks at the soils, the geology, the grassland, woodland, and the biology of the area is presented. Also included are environmental projects such as field trips, nature trails, activities, ideas, worksheets, and a teacher's planning guide, and a bibliography. (TK)
