Summaries of 18 conference presentations on diverse topics related to outdoor education are collected in this combination journal and newsletter, which also covers conference events and organizational business. Presentation summaries--generally one or two pages in length--provide highlights of the presentations as well as some guidelines for specific outdoor activities. Topics include creation of a slide/sound presentation, wetland and pond life study, teaching methods for outdoor educators, the Mobile Nature Centre of the Royal Botanical Gardens, safety practices for wilderness programs, prehistoric pottery making techniques, lobbying for the preservation of natural areas, story telling, popular music and environmental ethics, Iroquois culture, beekeeping, and folkdance. Other presentations describe an integrated unit for grades 7 and 8 based on Canadian fur trade and the use of schoolyard and neighborhood walks to develop language arts activities for intermediate grade students. A 6-page section is devoted to organizational goals and a 5-year plan for the Council of Outdoor Educators of Ontario. The planning process is described, followed by 22 general objectives related to administration and organizational purpose. Financial development, public relations, increased participation, and improved services for members are identified as high priorities. (JHZ)
