Montana Afterschool Alliance’s Land Use Explorers Guide

“Land Use Explorers: An instructor’s guide for activities on understanding our world and land use” is a guide that focuses specifically on the Upper Missouri River Basin, which includes much of Wyoming! The guide explores how food, water, energy, plants, wildlife, humans, and entire communities come together and affect one another. It was created to help people— especially young people— to participate in activities that encourage them to think about the land where they live, work, and play and how the land’s resources support the life they live.
