Attention is given to the methodology and results of a national survey of natural-environment-based education activities. Further discussion deals with interpretation of the Environmental Education Act of 1970 including the design of a survey instrument to collect data on interactions in environmental education. Concluding discussions cover the need to develop core themes in environmental education. Schematic models of various concepts and interrelationships are presented.
