Environmental Education Activities of Federal Agencies.
Disinger, John F., Comp.
This report presents information on the environmental education objectives, activities, accomplishments, and plans of forty-four agencies of the Federal Government. The agencies were sent a short outline of what might constitute a useful report and asked to submit a report, in narrative form, of about 1500-3000 words. The agency reports contain an overview of the general mission of the agency, an indication of the levels of involvement in environmental education, history of involvement, target audience, methods used, citations of enabling legislation, funding, grants available, products and publications, measures of success, and future plans. It is hoped that this publication will help identify gaps and needless duplication in environmental education efforts at the Federal Government level. (Author/BB)
