    We should not first know a bird from a book-as a word or a picture or an idea of something. We should first know a bird by seeing it fly, hearing it call, wearing its feather, observing its nest and egg shells on the ground, as it is.

    I thought the film was excellent and definitely has me wanting to do more outdoors with our 3 boys and let them just explore. I can strongly relate to the power of being active and outdoors in nature and how it brings people together and would like others to experience it as well. It is very sad given increasing childhood obesity rates that so much of society and public school education is based on sitting in lecture and teaching kids to just be good test takers. Time is fairly tight these days, but I’d like to learn and become more involved with organizations that work on issues raised by the film and work to get children and patients outdoors and more active again.

    I thought the film was beautiful! So much of it resonated with me–being outside on our own for hours at a time until mom called for dinner; creating forts and fantasy communities in the woods at the end of the street. A way of life that we took for granted has radically changed in such a short time. I loved the Kroka segment . . . I think it’s important for people to see that profound experiences in nature can happen at any age; it’s never too late to get your kids and yourself out there. All of the segments featured important mentors. . . I’m reminded of Rachel Carson’s words: “If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” More reason for parents to get out there too.

    The film left me feeling exhilarated; just watching the kids explore and challenge themselves. I feel lucky to live in Vermont where I’ve had so much opportunity to share the outdoors with my kids. I also came away with an almost panicky sense of urgency that people wake up to what is being lost. Guess that’s where the inspiration comes in; to keep doing my part to get the word out and help create opportunities for connecting kids with nature. Thank you so much for making this film!

    Hello, I was at a screening at my child’s elementary school, and it got me thinking about perhaps hosting a screening at IslandWood on Bainbridge Island near Seattle. We would love to see if the film’s director could be part of this gathering, since her sister lives in town here. Is this a possibility?
