A Natural Bond builds upon Connecting to Place, a video I made for Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Spring of 2011. A Natural Bond provides a space for children and parents to express how participating in eco-literacy programs provided by Hitchcock Center has influenced their lives. One message that consistently surfaces: that we (humans) will not protect what we do not appreciate or understand and that children must develop a love for and understanding of nature in order to make informed decisions, later on, in adulthood. The last six minutes of this video bring me near tears every time I watch it.
It is such a pleasure to work with the Hitchcock Center and, if you are ever in the area, I encourage you to stop by!
