Hot off the presses - A Guide to Understanding a Sense of Place from EPA

The USEPA's Community Culture and the Environment: A Guide to Understanding
a Sense of Place is available for ordering.  The Guide explores the concepts

integrate local realities with ecological issues.  The Guide is designed for
people involved in community-based initiatives, including those affiliated
with community and watershed-based organizations, universities, and federal,
state, tribal, and local agencies.  Learn more about how this valuable
resource can help you achieve your environmental protection goals by
