Brushwood Center is partnering with Heller Nature Center to show NaturePlay, an internationally acclaimed and award-winning documentary that contrasts the “Scandinavian method of teaching, living and enjoying nature” with the current widespread circumstances of childhood–“high stakes testing and high stress.” This galvanizing film provides a beautiful window into childhood and how a child’s connection to nature is key to personal and social growth and development.
The film will be followed by a brief Q&A with local education and environmental experts. Guests will then be invited to enjoy a walk through Heller Nature Center’s own nature play space–Wander Woods!
Educators, nature enthusiasts, parents, students, and anyone interested are encouraged to attend!
FREE. Registration is recommended. Click HERE or call 224.633.2426.
