Created: 10/7/2013
This is the final report submitted by the Center for Natural Lands Management (CNLM) describing the results of an SSC grant-funded project that enabled second and sixth graders to take a field trip to the Glacial Heritage Preserve in Thurston County. One second grade class and one sixth grade class from Littlerock Elementary School traveled to the Preserve and explored the preserve using worksheets and other materials that CNLM developed using SSC grant money. Grant money also paid for bus transportation to and from Glacial Heritage.

Worksheets were developed for students so they could check-off and describe plants and animals they saw at the preserve. A simple prairie model was also developed along with an accompanying field guide that enabled students to assemble the model as they learned about the prairie.

Introduction to the Lake Wilderness Arboretum
Owner: Education
Type: Training
Domain: LWAF
Status: In Use on 3/18/2017
Created: 3/18/2017
This document/presentation provides an overview of the Lake Wilderness Arboretum. It is both a "document" and a "presentation" because it is designed for multiple purposes. It's designed to meet the needs of three different types of people:

Viewers of the slide show
This audience sees only the PowerPoint charts - many of which have no text on them. They do not see the notes that are associated with each chart and which serve as a script for the presenter's narrative.

Presenters of the slide show
The slide show presenter not only sees each chart being presented, but also a notes page for each chart that is included using PowerPoint's notes capability. Notes pages are designed so that (in theory) the presenter would not need to do anything but read the notes word-for-word while presenting the charts.

Readers of the document
The reader of this document is somebody who wants to get an overview of the Arboretum without having to go to a presentation. This user type can simply view the pictures and read the associated text to learn about the Arboretum. The reader could be a docent or potential docent, in which case, the document serves as a "Docent Primer." It provides a solid foundation for a docent - enabling them to start serving as a docent while gaining experience and knowledge through on-the-job service.

This material is in the public domain with the exception that attributed photos, must keep the attribution if reused on a derivative document.

WARNING!
The PowerPoint file is 60 Megabytes, depending on your Internet speed, it could take a while to download. I have Comcast and it downloads in less than 30 seconds. The 9MB PDF file downloads in about 5 seconds.
