Kindlund, Rod, Comp.; Boshart, Tihisia, Comp.
In 1992, Elaine McKinney and six college interns set into motion an experiment in human relations at the Forest Service's Northeast Area and Station Headquarters in Radnor, PA. The program provides basic conservation education to urban youth who may never have been exposed to the concepts of conservation, recycling, or forest management. This report represents the experiences of the 15 interns and five supervisors in the 1998 Conservation Education Outreach Program. Also, the Northeastern Area Station and the Southern Research Station Programs (in Asheville and Huntsville, Alabama) are described and evaluated. (Contains 11 references.) (CCM)
