For your enjoyment, here is a resource courtesy of the U.S. Forest Service. If you order under 100 of them they're absolutely free!
A Day in the Forest with Smokey Bear, DVD
Green Teacher has republished their guidebook Greening School Grounds as an e-book. Single copies are $9.99, but there are price discounts for multiple copies. This is a great resource that uses step-by-step instructions on how to complete schoolyard projects, from tree nurseries to school composting to native plant gardens.
(Note: Prices are in Canadian dollars because Green Teacher is located in Canada. U.S. orders are adjusted to reflect exchange rate so the final price will be different than what is listed.)
