My First Summer In the Sierra (1911)

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”

  • Great Coyote Lodge (GCL) is trying to purchase Dallenbach’s forest in order to put an extension on Crystal Springs Water Park. This proposed construction will include a hotel and indoor water park on the area that is currently forested (where we had our field trip). In addition, half of Dallenbach’s Pond would be converted into the world’s largest wave pool.
  • As an employee of the East Brunswick Environmental Protection Agency part of your job is to protect natural areas for the benefit of the community. You have been assigned to write an essay, complete with two visual aids (energy pyramids) defending the preservation of Dallenbach’s forest which you will use at the Township meeting where the fate of forest will be determined.

You may hand write or type your response. This means you will be handing in an essay that counts as part of your Ecology Unit Test grade. This will be due on Monday, November 10th.

Use of Vocabulary

Here is an example using a vocabulary word from last year:

  • The toxic leachate running from the landfill caused pollution in a nearby river.

*Notice the way the word leachate was used, it is clear that the student understood leachate is toxic and its possible, harmful effect on river.
