In this research, the rural work experience program for a high school student was carried out as a proposal of the natural experience program which leads to the environmental education or rural-urban integration. In the experience program, three courses (a day's trip, and one night-two days, and two nights-three days) were arranged, and coniferous forest thinning and agricultural works, such as rice harvesting, were conducted. The results were as follows: Through the questionnaire to the students before and after experience, their rural and environmental consciousness showed to tend deeper by the program. The follow-up survey after the program also showed the effect of the program on their rural consciousness and wish to nature contact. However, it became clear that most of them could not participate in the conservation action, due to time shortage in their daily life.
