A number of voluntary organizations such as the Wildlife Institute, Educational Conservation Society, American Forestry Association, American Nature Association, etc., are devoting their efforts to stimulation of a more nearly adequate appreciation of the place conservation holds in our national life. It is more and more generally realized that we need intelligent action toward a Nation-wide, effective, permanent program in conservation. Organized public education offers the best, if not the only, means of ultimately and fully accomplishing this purpose. The schools throughout the country have made progress in introducing conservation into the curricular program and in adapting the technical knowledge now available to classroom use. The purposes of this bulletin on "Conservation Education" are first to provide school officials and others interested with information concerning progress so far made in introducing conservation into the school program, and, second, to stimulate further progress through a description of instructional practices which have been successfully followed in a number of school systems. A bibliography is included. (Contains 23 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
