AbstractThere is increasing popularity for greenway projects that utilize stream and river corridors. Benefits encompass many social and environmental values. Although these corridors can accommodate multiple uses, conflicts can occur. Public education may be used to manage these conflicts. Greenway education programs are common, but the role that these programs play is not often well defined. This thesis investigates what role public environmental education is playing in greenway projects today. There are many excellent greenway education programs with good public support. Many elements of these programs are very successful, while other elements need further research and refinement. The success of today's programs are an encouraging indication of the even greater potential of future programs.
