The Nature of This Place: Book & Curriculum Guide
The Nature of This Place: Investigations and Adventures in the Yuba Watershed
Bruce Boyd and Liese Greensfelder, editors with foreword by Gary Snyder
In June we published The Nature of This Place Curriculum Guide developed for K-8 natural science education by the Yuba Watershed Institute, and written by Rachel Durben of the Sierra Streams Institute, in partnership with the Twin Ridges Elementary School District. This project was inspired by the field studies YWI has provided for Grizzly Hill Elementary School students over the years. Now this curriculum is an open source so everyone can benefit from it. The development of the curriculum guide was funded by the Teichert Foundation and published by Flicker Press. Illustrations by Randy Griffis.
