The Field Investigations guide was developed to help K-12 teachers introduce their students to methods used in scientific field research and guide them through the process of conducting field investigations using these scientific practices. The guide is a project of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ North American Conservation Education Strategy, was developed by the Pacific Education Institute, and funded by a multistate grant of the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program.
Greynolds Park in North Miami Beach, once a rock quarry, is now a 249-acre park consisting of a hardwood hammock and mangrove forest. Greynolds is one of the last well-protected natural areas of northern Miami-Dade County.
