We need your help and input!!! The Environmental Education Materials: Guidelines for Excellence were first published in 1996 and have been updated about every five years since then. We are in the process of revising these guidelines once again. The process is iterative. Our writing team developed the current draft. We invite you to review this draft and provide comments that will be used in the revision process.
This set of guidelines describes recommendations for developing and selecting environmental education instructional resources. They aim to help producers of activity guides, lesson plans, and other instructional materials create high quality products and to provide educators with a tool to evaluate the wide array of available environmental education materials.
