The allure of video games, the demands of school, and the stresses of urban living have produced a generation of youth that spend 90% of their childhood indoors. What are the consequences of growing up so detached from the natural world and what can be done about it? Nature Kids is a family friendly, documentary style film with the aim of getting kids back into nature. Follow a young family on an adventurous backpacking trip across the High Sierras, enjoy animated vignettes from the lives of John Muir, Henry David Thoreau, Jane Goodall and others, and hear the insights and wisdom of scholars, naturalists, parents, and children from around the world. It is time to reunite Mother Nature with her children!
Nature Kids is curently in production and will be completed later this year. Follow our progress and watch behind the scenes video clips at our Facebook page.
Here are the first two sneak peak videos. Enjoy!
