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.

2012 Kroka Vermont Semester

2012 Kroka Vermont Semester...

Every year since we first met (and filmed!) Misha Golfman and the crew from Kroka Expeditions in 2009, we inwardly rejoice to hear that a new group of students have begun their journey north on the Vermont Semester ski and canoe adventure. The group is organized so that every student has a specific job and they switch throughout the trip so everyone gets to learn different skills.
