SITE OF THE MONTH FOR NOVEMBER: State of Illinois
http://www.state.il.us/
The State of Illinois portal offers wide access to the citizens of
Illinois and the people of the world. Visitors can experience virtual
tours of the Governor's mansion, or customize a trip to Illinois using
"Tourism" resources. The "Inside Illinois" RouteMAP provides interactive
state information, powered by GIS technology. "Agencies" transports
visitors to a smorgasbord of sites, ranging from Natural Resources'
interactive learning activities and the Environmental Protection
Agency's land, water and air initiatives, to Illinois Virtual Campus'
distance learning. Rounding out this sampler are Technology's link to
the Illinois Century Network, providing an environment for universities,
colleges, schools, libraries, museums, and state and local government to
communicate interactively and collaboratively regardless of geographic
location, and VentureTECH, a five-year, $1.9 billion comprehensive
strategy for investing state resources in education and advanced
research and development, health sciences and biotechnology, and
cutting-edge information technology programs.

SCIENCE & THE ENVIRONMENT BULLETIN

WITH THESE HANDS
http://www.with-these-hands.org/
This farmland documentary project from the Grand Traverse Regional Land
Conservancy features stories about four farm families in the Michigan
communities of Old Mission and Leelanau peninsulas. Exposing the culture
in agriculture, these stories are especially important now in the face
of sprawl and the plight of the American family farm.
