Schoolyard Habitat Project Guide

by Carolyn Kolstad, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Year Published: 2011

A planning guide for creating schoolyard habitat and outdoor classroom projects.  This is your guide book to transforming your school grounds into a place that engages the entire school community in habitat restoration. You are a part of a national movement dedicated to developing a citizenry that consciously values their environment. Once you move through this process, your school community will connect to the natural world, not by sitting inside and looking out, but instead by being outside and looking deeper. This is a how-to guide. It will take you and your students through each step of the process: planning, installing and sustaining a project. This is not a book about why schoolyard projects are important; this is a guide about how to make the best one for your site.
