I love the idea of informal science, but I am having a hard time grasping the idea. I would love to see some sample lessons or integrations... does anyone know of a place I can find that? I could also use some clarification on informal science in general, are there any good books that could help?

The NSTA has a position statement about Informal Science Education at: http://www.nsta.org/informal/
Hopefully that will give you a suitable definition.
There are gobs of journal articles and NSTA books on informal science and learning. Try a search putting in
the search space: "informal learning". Then narrow the search down to a few hundred resources by filtering for lesson plans in the left margin.
