Project WET Water Curriculum
This full-color, fully revised 592-page guide contains 64 multidisciplinary water-related activities for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. The guide features cross-reference and planning charts, a glossary and background material on activity development and field testing. The cornerstone of Project WET is its methodology of teaching about water resources through hands-on, investigative, easy-to-use activities. Project WET activities are designed to complement existing curricula rather than displace or add additional concepts. Activities fulfill objectives and educational standards in the sciences, as well as other disciplines, from fine arts to health. Because water is ubiquitous, water-related concepts can be found in almost any field of study. In addition, the Guide has been correlated with the educational standards of most states. Activities within the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide are universal in their methods of teaching about water. More than 40 countries in addition to the United States use Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide activities.

BLM to Use State, Regional Data in Identifying Wildlife Corridors, Crucial Habitat
Washington, D.C. - The Bureau of Land Management announced today that it will use state and regional data and maps to help it identify wildlife corridors and crucial habitat in future land-use planning and management efforts. The maps will be available for the BLM to use as a result of the Western Wildlife Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool, known as "CHAT", an initiative of the Western Governors' Association. In 2009, the Departments of the Interior, Agriculture and Energy signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Western Governors' Association regarding coordination among federal agencies and states in the identification and uniform mapping of wildlife corridors and crucial habitat. Information developed through the CHAT will facilitate an organized and comprehensive approach to obtaining wildlife-related data and maps by the BLM and other federal agencies. A West-wide CHAT is expected to be available in 2013.
