Bike-A-Then riders fight childhood cancer Today we call upon all Stillwater, MN, April 26 and 27, was the meeting place of the Upper-midwest Environmental Education Symposium. This symposium was a meeting of environmental educators and activists from all over the world. This group of planners has, as its main thrust, the goal of improving the earth's environment by improving the environmental education of our children. While at times the group seems to have an international objective, the plans and efforts of the people at the local and individual levels are recognized as the foundation of a successful achievement of goals. The Stiilwater symposium was designed to bring together environmental educators and activists from throughout the state of Minnesota to discuss, share ideas, and create a network of programs to improve the quality and quantity of environmental education in our schools. Mr. Jzimes L. Ballard, science teacher for the Westbrook/Walnut Grove Middle School, was invited by the symposium to present his recent paper, "Regional Field Programs and Alternative Energy Education." Mr. Ballard demonstrated efforts being used by our local middle school to support and improve student's environmental education. The two main topics discussed were the middle school's planned, "Passive Solar Heated Green House and Life Science Study Area" and "National Energy Education Project 1991-92" an activity planned for next year's school calendar. "Participation in discussions with other symposium leaders offered a wealth of additional, new, and creative ideas that can be utilized to improve our efforts, here in Walnut Grove," Mr. Ballard said. "It was also nice to be able to demonstrate, to those city folks, the fore-sightedness and progressive thinking that's happening out here on the prairie" Ballard commented. Individuals leading the symposium included Claus Nobel, Nobel Prize Committee, Senator Gaylord Nelson, National Earth Watch, Hubert "Skip" Humphrey III, Minnesota Attorney General, and many other high level environmental activists. The symposium was hosted by the Minnesota State Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Agency, and the Stillwater School Board using a grant from the National Environmental Protection Agency.
