Url: https://www.nationalgeographic.org/media/geography-awareness-week-2002...
Publisher: National Geographic Society (U.S.)
Description: America's Backyard: Exploring Your Public Lands is the featured topic of National Geographic's Geography Action! -- an "annual conservation and awareness program designed to educate and excite people about our natural, cultural, and historic treasures." This Web site offers a number of public land-related educational activities, many of the which apply directly to the life sciences. Activities are available for grades K-12, and cover such topics as the role of forests in our daily lives, conservation issues on public lands, and pollution as a pan-political problem. Each lesson plan includes background information, procedural instructions, links to related Web sites, a list of National Geography Standards, and more. The site also offers a number of other activities related to public lands, including a tour of the Online Public Lands Museum and ways to participate in Geography Awareness Week (November 17-23, 2002).
