Smn- mer school is an additive tWat should foster educational expcri- Les. It is getting to the place .vhere schools must be used all ymr around, to take advantage of the millions of dollars m bmldm^ that set Mle flor three months all over the oouirtry. Education is *fn»2f- the concepts are also heme changed^ One of the concepts that has s^n a notable change is in outdoor edu¬ cation. One of America's gi^ve problems is the deteriorating en¬ vironment. Not <»Iy are our tradi¬ tional resources, soil, water, forests wildlife, minerals, endangered, but so is the air we breathe and the natural beauty we preceive. More¬ over, n<wse. litter, human conges¬ tion threaten to overwhelm us. Ls there an answer to our dilemma? One answer, of course, is conserva¬ tion, and much of conservation mu.-vt a>me through education. The recent upswing in outdoor recreation has focused attention on the growing need for quality in outdoor experi¬ ence, calling for more and better programs of learning and enlighten¬ ment. This was one phase of this sum¬ mer school, although we bave only touched the surface. Our students have learned while enjoying: this phase of our summer school. Wc hopp, wo can continue throughout the year and again next summer .this very important part of life throug;h education of the outdoors. Regular Meeting of Park District HUNTLEY PARK MSTRICT ...
