Clip from Post Film Discussion

A year ago, the Burlington, VT premiere of Mother Nature’s Child was attended by an audience of more than 200, most of whom stayed for the post-film discussion with a panel moderated by Walter Poleman, lecturer and Associate Director of the Field Naturalist Graduate Program at the University of Vermont. Here one viewer asks about how the Baltimore schools in the film were able to create programs to get their students outside. Director Camilla Rockwell responds briefly and refers the question to Walter to talk about what is happening in Burlington. An additional comment comes from Jen Cirillo, Director of Development at Shelburne Farms, an environmental education center on the shore of Lake Champlain not far from Burlington. At screenings all over the country, audiences want to know what they might do to help schools adjust their curricula to allow children more time learning — and playing — outside. Your questions and insights are welcome!
