The Green Book is one of the outcomes of the “GetOutside! NB” initiative. It is a province-wide concept aimed at connecting youth and families to nature using the national and provincial parks as a starting point. It is a collaboration among departments of government, both federal and provincial, and non-governmental organizations, all sharing the vision of connecting people to nature. The GetOutside! NB Green Book provides information aimed to serve as a guide for all outdoor educators who wish to safely connect people to nature. The guide is intended to take you along the outdoor education cycle from planning to delivery. Find an introduction to basic ecological concepts, an overview of safety and risk concerns, as well as a section on outdoor education and topics such as leadership, program planning, and program delivery. The fourth section includes examples of games and activities for outdoor education programs, and it presents some sample programs. The final section contains reference information and contacts to aid in the development of outdoor education experiences.
