Nonformal Environmental Education Programs: Guidelines for Excellence comprises a set of recommendations for developing and administering high quality nonformal environmental education programs. These recommendations provide a tool that can be used to ensure a firm foundation for new programs or to trigger improvements in existing ones. The overall goal of these guidelines is to facilitate a superior educational process leading to the environmental quality that people desire. This overall goal is shared with the other guidelines produced by the North American Association for Environmental Education's National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education.

The term "environmental education program" is used in these guidelines to mean an integrated sequence of planned educational experiences and materials intended to reach a particular set of objectives. Programs, taken together, are the methods by which an organization's education goals are accomplished. Programs can be small or large and can range from short-term, one-time events to long-term, community capacity-building efforts.

Nonformal Environmental Education Programs: Guidelines for Excellence points out six key characteristics of high quality nonformal environmental education programs. For each characteristic, guidelines are listed for nonformal program developers or educators to consider.
