Curtis, Ramona E.
Designed as a tool for school personnel seeking sites and facilities for resident outdoor education, this directory provides information on 45 resident outdoor education sites in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. The document is organized in a comprehensive table and in individual site descriptions. For each site, the table briefly indicates: name; location; availability; size; capacity; meal facilities; availability of winterized housing; availability of instructional staff; and area and physical characteristics (bog, cave, forest, lake, marsh, prairies, stream, quarry, cemetery). Individual citations contain: complete address; name and address of person to contact; accreditation; size; and rental rates for groups of different sizes. Each citation also contains a description of the physical site; facilities; and available services, activities, and equipment. The prices quoted in the directory are for 1978 and are subject to change. (SB)
