This paper will discuss requisites to create field study programs at institutions which offer natural experience for students in terms of (1) a development scheme, (2) user needs, and (3) study tasks and utility value. To explore these, first, a development process to create field study programs for school children and students in the Field Studies Council(FSC) in the UK will be introduced as an efficient example. Second, some characteristics of the program development methodology of the FSC will be examined. Finally, some implications for the delivery of such experience in the natural environment will be presented in order to solve the problems for organizations in Japan. The following four points are relevant to the creation of systematic field study programs in Japan: (1) to create development schemes, including managers and chiefs of the organizations following the program development process; (2) to set clear and consistent tasks for studying; (3) to provide basic skills for learning and to set up original programs using the characteristics of the natural environment of the local area; (4) to set up a framework to cover various requirements of the users, such as stocking modules as pieces for drawing up a program and combining some of them, depending on user needs.
