Using a Local Greenway to Study the River Environment and Urban Landscape
Lackstrom, Kirsten; Stroup, Laura J.
Journal of Geography, v108 n2 p78-89 2009
Greenways are prominent features of many urban landscapes and synthesize several geographic topics: human-environment interactions, urban ecosystems, and the promotion of sustainability within riverine corridors. Greenways are easily accessible and provide an opportunity for students at various grade levels to study interactions across physical and human systems. Students can gain an appreciation of the natural and cultural resources located in a local river environment while building skills linked to the National Geography Standards. Greenway-related activities can be designed so that students practice the acquisition, interpretation, and integration of geographic information obtained from a variety of sources and methods.
