Proceedings – INTRODUCTION

Proceedings of the First Park Naturalists’ Training Conference, November 1 to 30, 1929



These Proceedings of the First Conference of Park Naturalists now make their appearance after some two years delay. The press of current administration in the rapidly developing Branch of Research and Education makes excuses for this delay unnecessary.

In distributing the Proceedings to park superintendents, park naturalists and other officers of the Service, we have aimed to present not merely an outline of discussions, but rather a condensed statement of the principles underlying the major fields of activity in the so-called “educational” work in the national parks. It is felt that this material has permanent value and will be of practical use in the field.
