Directory of Nature Centers and Related Environmental Education Facilities. Third Revision.
National Audubon Society, New York, NY.
This directory is part of a continuing effort to identify facilities actively involved in environmental education. Designed as a guide for the casual visitor as well as the professional person, it aims to stimulate interest in nature centers, improve communication among facilities, and encourage development of new and better ones. This third revision contains a listing of 558 facilities, including 41 in Canada. Directory entries consist of abstracted information from a questionnaire designed by the Nature Planning Division of the National Audubon Society. Arranged alphabetically by state or province, each entry includes the name, address, telephone number, and organization responsible for operation and maintenance. Those facilities primarily school-oriented are indicated with an asterisk. Other information includes facility size, program offerings, availability of self-guided tours, and time the facility is open. In addition, this directory provides a list of facilities primarily concerned with outdoor interpretation. Operation and maintenance are by the following federal agencies: Bureau of Reclamation, Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Soil Conservation Service, and Tennessee Valley Authority. Listed alphabetically, entries contain the name, address, telephone number, agency responsible for operation, and a brief description. For additional information, individual facilities can be contacted personally. (BP)
