Environmental Education: River Policy and Procedures.
Snyder, Glenn; And Others
Accurate as of October 1975, the guidebook establishes detailed procedures and policies to be used by all persons engaged in white water rafting trips involving students from Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Schools, and provides a general guide and set of instructions for anyone planning and carrying out such a trip. The guidelines are drawn from the latest state and federal information available, from the Colorado Outward Bound School, and from the knowledge of many experienced river rafting supervisors. The guidebook provides secondary school staff members who sponsor river rafting activities with minimum safety and sanitation standards (safety restrictions, first aid treatment, emergency procedures, hand and dish washing, food and drinking water preparation and storage, waste disposal). Information and checklists regarding the kind, use, and care of all required equipment are included. The book presents full instructions for five suggested environmental activities, a sample activity timetable for a 5-day trip, and instructional sequences for teaching rafting skills. Organizational material includes a preparatory checklist and time schedule, staff criteria, sample menus, a reading and reference list, and detailed information about the condition of several Colorado rivers and their environments.
