The environment is often neglected or abused in our modern times. Building, development, economic
activities as well as recreation overuse have placed a number of pressures upon our natural resources
and public lands. It is important to understand our environment from the human perspective.
Management decisions involving public and private resource lands will require public involvement and
action, be that citizen input or voting at the ballot box. In the years ahead, we as a society and you as an
individual will be faced with some of the most difficult and far-reaching environmental decisions ever
placed before a citizenry. Ozone depletion, global warming, toxic contamination and waste management,
nuclear waste storage, forest and water preservation are but a few of the issues which will test our
understanding of the environment and our resolve as concerned citizens. Underlying public concern and
involvement in these issues is the assumption that citizens are informed, aware and willing to become
involved. It is a prerequisite for a democracy.

"At the individual level, people have begun to respond to increased awareness of global environmental
change by altering their values, beliefs and actions. Changes in individual behavior are surely necessary
but are not enough. It is as a global species -- pooling our knowledge, coordinating our actions and
sharing what the planet has to offer -- that we have any prospect for managing the planet's transformation
along pathways of sustainable development. Self-conscious, intelligent management of the earth is one
of the great challenges facing humanity as it approaches the 21st century."
Clark, W. C. (1989) Managing Plant Earth. Scientific American, 261(3) 47-54


This course is designed to foster a better understanding of the environment and human action toward the
environment. Environmental action, be it political, financial or social, requires knowledge and awareness.
 This course will survey historical environmental perspectives and present day environmental problems.
The process of preserving wilderness will be defined and used as a metaphor for understanding how we
know the environment, respond to it, use or abuse our surroundings and natural resources. Historical
points of view will be compared and contrasted with modern "environmentalism" as well as multicultural
and futuristic perspectives. The course will cut across a number of settings, from urban to rural,
wilderness to the planned landscape. Some of the concepts to be covered include: wilderness,
preservation, environmental ethics, environmental attitudes and perceptions, environmental movements
and organizations and natural resource use and management, particularly related to recreation and
tourism activity.

By the end of the course, a student should be able to:

       recognize and describe major historical events and people who have shaped our present day use
        attitudes and responses toward our natural resources;

       differentiate between various worldviews regarding the environment as well as the movements
        and organizations that represent these worldviews;

       articulate and critique various environmental behavior concepts and processes;

       assess and critique current environmental problems;

       describe individual, social and institutional actions and changes required for planetary health and

       relate the wilderness metaphor to current environmental issues.


1. Student Participation. Most material is presented through lectures, discussions, and cooperative
learning exercises (i.e., learning together in groups). Open and frank discussion is encouraged and
expected in each class period. Students are also expected to be present in the class, prepared and ready
to lead and participate in discussions, and willing to engage in cooperative learning (small group)
activities. Fifteen percent of you grade (same as an exam!) relates to your class participation.

If you attempt to contact me and I am not available, it is your responsibility to leave a complete message
with your name, phone number, date and time. You may also leave a written message in my mailbox in
151 Natural Resources or contact me via Email.

2. Writing Quality. I expect high quality writing in all your assignments. In this course, “high quality”
means writing that is well-planned and coherent. It has been subjected to several drafts and revisions. It
follows standard, edited written English practices. Papers that do not meet these “high quality” criteria will
be returned to you for revision with no grade.

3. Exams. The first two exams are made up of essay and short answer questions. You will have several
choices for the final exam, all of which will be "take-home" (I'll provide details later). The first two exams
will be closed book. Make-up exams are rare. Make up exams are provided only for documented medical
excuses; they are essay as well.

4. Environmental Issues Updates. Select an environmental issue (local, state, national international) that
interests you (some examples follow). It would be helpful if your issue is one that has meaning to you.
Keep in mind that this issue and assignment will be the basis of the next assignment. Issues will be
approved ahead of time.

Your assignment will be to explain concisely the issue (an issue has two sides) in a two page statement.
The first page and a half of your assignment should be a describe of the issue. (1) Provide a brief history
explaining the different perspectives to the issue, (2) note any pending plans of action or resolutions under
consideration. (3) Comment on what action you think should be taken and why. (4) In the last half of the
two pages describe the significance of this issue to you and your interests. Be prepared to offer a brief
summary of your findings to the class for discussion. Turn in a copy of an article, newspaper article or

other reference that suggested the problem to you. You may work in pairs on this assignment if you like.
Submit your selection and partner's name (if applicable) in writing by the fifth class (September 15).
Some Issues to get your started (you may choose one of these; other choices are possible but first obtain
instructor approval):

        U.S.News and World Report, August 15, 1994, P. 55 offers a hint.

11.     As if whales and other sea life did not have enough problems, now Scripps Institute of
        Oceanography in San Diego is trying to study the ocean and global warming with the project
        Acoustic Thermometry of Ocean Climate. It involves sending low freq. sounds across the ocean
        over a 30 month period. What is the latest, will it happen and what are the environmental
        impacts? Water Impacts, Institute of Water Research, MSU, August 1994, P.1.

18.   In Nov. 1994, the people of Michigan were asked to vote on developing an endowment fund to
      support the Michigan State Parks system. What was the nature of the ballot issue and how did
      Michigan vote on the issue? What will be the repercussions? What‟s happening with the
      State Parks now?

      latest in the program, how do or can faculty and students contribute and pitch in? Recycling and
      Waste Reduction - 355 0354.

21.   In the past, recreation on public lands in the U.S. has been provided at zero or low cost to
      visitors. Now, with budgets being cut at the federal, state and local levels, there is more and
      more pressure to apply a pay to play strategy in which users of various types are increasingly
      asked to pay for the services and management of resources to meet their needs.
      Hunters, snowmobilers, anglers and others contribute to the funds needed to manage the lands
      and provide services. Higher fees are also being considered for use of less or undeveloped
      lands, wilderness areas, parks, campgrounds, forests, and trails. Is this acceptable? Will it
      provide enough funding? What about equity and access? Who will gain and who will lose?

      were the conclusions of the experts at this convention in terms of (a) world forests and (b)
      indigenous peoples that live near and depend on these forests? (heard on National Public Radio)

24.   People are chaining themselves to redwoods on private land, owned by Pacific Lumber in
      California. Why? What‟s the latest thinking on who should decide the fate of these trees?

25.     What is the "MSU-Green" initiative? Why did this initiative arise? How can students get involved?
        Contact instructor and Terry Link (MSU Library).

5. Position Statement/Cover Letter OR Content Analysis of Internet Environmental Literature.
         5.A. Position Statement/Cover Letter. The objectives of this assignment are for you to articulate
an environmental issue, to examine conflicting perspectives on this issue, and to develop a position
statement to be sent to someone in a policy or decision making role. Each person or team (no more than
3 per team) will submit a typed paper taking and defending a position on one of the issues they wrote
about in the Issues Update Assignment. A progress report will be due and there will be a chance to revise
based on class and instructor feedback. The final product must have the following:
a.       A description of the issue (you will most likely have to expand on your discussion from your
         issue paper). Explain why is this an issue?
b.       A discussion of your position on the issue including both how it is the same and how it is
         different from others positions. You must logically support your views using evidence you‟ve
         collected. What is the basis for your position?
c.       A discussion of what the future holds for resolution of the issue.
d.       A reference list containing a minimum of six references used to gather information on the issue.
e.       A cover letter to the person to whom you are sending your position paper. This must be a formal
         letter. You will need to find out the person‟s correct title and address. After the papers are
         evaluated and revised, you will be encouraged to mail them.
         Papers must be 3-4 pages in length (not including the cover letter) and MUST BE TYPED OR
COMPUTER PRINTED. Double-space and provide one inch borders on all sides. Turn off proportional
spacing and do not right justify. Use the default font and size - pica or elite (10 or 12 point) - no fancy or
large fonts! Be sure you proofread your paper.

         5.B. Content Analysis of Internet Environmental Literature. There is computer software
which analyzes the content of environmental literature than appears on the internet. The software allows
individuals to assess, for example, changes in how much attention is devoted to a particular topic over
time. To illustrate, one could examine the content of newspaper articles regarding logging versus other
uses of the Tongass National Forest (Alaska). The results could indicate changes in people's values
regarding how the Tongass should be used (e.g., recreation vs. logging). It is a powerful tool especially
for those of you interested in tracking environmental policies and changes in values over time. However,
some software packages are expensive and I need to do a little more research to see if this is even
feasible. Talk to me if you are interested in this and I will see what I can do to get you the software for a
small price or free.
