Greenwich Township Environmental Analysis: A Field Study 1972-74.
Bahorik, J. Wesley, Ed.
This project attempted to develop a baseline on which the community could assess its own local environment. The objectives of the study include developing a list of references and resources, developing an assessment model for community use, composing an environmental quality index, determining areas to be protected and persuading decision-making bodies to proper land management, involving college and community groups in a cooperative effort, recommending and providing guidelines for future studies, and publishing results for public use. Eight subprojects were completed combining the social and natural elements of the community. The study areas defined were historical survey, attitude assessment, botanical analysis, macro-invertebrates study, fish life study, wildlife analysis, solid waste analysis, and population analysis.
