The plan is presented in seven sections. Section I is an introduction to the plan. Section II identifies recommendations for the Minnesota legislature and focuses on funding and policy direction. Sections III and IV identify priority audiences and provide related background information, needs, partnership strategies, and environmental education strategies for the following groups: preK-12 students, higher education students, government officials and boards, consumers, producers/landowners, regulated community, business community, outdoor recreational resource users, citizen and youth groups, and religious groups. In addition, the ten year work plan for the Office of Environmental Education and the Environmental Education Advisory Board is outlined. Section V contains guidelines for providing programs for people from specific cultural or demographic backgrounds and for people with varying abilities. Section VI profiles providers of environmental education in Minnesota. Section VII discusses the continuing planning and evaluation process. (LZ)
