A Free Hazardous Waste Cleanup and Prevention Poster! This poster is the seventh in a series of water-resources education posters developed through the Water Resources Education Initiative. The Water Resources Education Initiative is a cooperative effort between public and private education interests. Partners in the program include the U.S. Geological Survey, Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Groundwater Foundation, and the National Science Teachers Association. The other completed posters in the series are entitled, "Water, The Resource That Gets Used and Used and Used for Everything!," "How Do We Treat Our Wastewater?," "Wetlands: Water, Wildlife, Plants, and People!," "Ground Water: The Hidden Resource!," "Water Quality: Potential Sources of Pollution," and "Navigation: Traveling the Water Highway." The posters in the series are designed to be joined to create a wall mural. Water-resources topics of the posters are drawn in a cartoon format by the same artist. Posters are available in color or black-and-white. The reverse sides of the color posters contain educational activities: one version for children in grades 3-5 and the other with activities for children in grades 6-8. The black-and-white posters are intended for coloring by children in grades K-2. Copies of the seven posters in the series (color or black-and-white, for grades K-2, 3-5, or 6-8) can be obtained at no cost from the U.S. Geological Survey. Write to the address below and specify the poster title(s) and grade level(s) desired. Please write, call, or e-mail to order:

The scouting graphics for all levels of scouting are available on line at


or you can get it as a CD

Why A CD?:

For years we have been maintaining a free online library of Scouting images. Over the years many Scouters asked about how to go about having their own copy of all the images on the ftp site so that they could take the library with them on Scouting events.

This USSSP CD-ROM contains over 16,000 images (approximately 5,000 unique images in multiple formats) and 1,500 documents from our Clipart & File Library Site.

Purchase Your Copy of the CD: If you would like to purchase a copy of the CD you can use our order form. If you have suggestions for what you would like to see included on the next version of our CD, please drop us a line.

Download the Same Resources for Free: Remember, you don't have to buy a CD to use any of our free resources. Please feel free to browse our Clipart and File Library and download anything that will help you or your Scouting organization. We built the Clipart and File Library for the purpose of making Scouting resources available to Scouts and Scouters to further the aims of Scouting.

Need Something You Can't Find At USSSP: If you can't find what you need, please let the U.S. Scouting Service Project know and we'll see what we can do.

Contributions Welcome: If you have clipart, documents, or other stuff that you'd like to share, please let us know. We are always looking for new material to add to the library.

Versions and Future Plans:

Version 1.1 of the USSSP CD has a new cover to indicate that it was produced by USSSP (Version 1.0 was produced by our fulfillment agent). The contents are the same as Version 1.0.

We are currently considering the production of a Version 2.0 CD with more content and resources.
