SuggESTED ACTIVITIES
1. If you live in a suburban or rural area, interview several persons who have lived in your community for at least
60 years. How have the hunting and fishing changed over the last 50 years? Are there more or fewer forested
areas? What have been the worst floods? Have they seen any severe erosion or sedimentation problems develop?
2. If you live in a large city, interview a relative or friend who is at least 60 years old and who was raised in a
rural area. Ask him or her the same questions about the area where he or she grew up.
3. Try to find some old (pre-1920) books or articles on conservation in your library or on the Internet and read them.
Try to determine how our perspectives on conservation have changed. Have the goals of conservationists changed?
4. Find and view videos on the Internet dealing with some topic discussed in this chapter. Use them to lead to
a class discussion on how conservation efforts in the US have changed in the past 250 years.
