USD’s Manchester Family Child Development Center, San Diego Children and Nature Collaborative, and Family Adventures in Nature are proud to present a free screening of the documentary film "Mother Nature’s Child: Growing Outdoors in the Media Age." 

From filmmaker Camilla Rockwell and co-director Wendy Conquest comes a new documentary film "Mother Nature’s Child: Growing Outdoors in the Media Age," which explores nature’s powerful role in children’s health and development through the experiences of toddlers, children, and adolescents. This important film asks the questions: Why do children need unstructured time outside? What is the place of risk-taking in healthy child development? How can city kids connect with nature?

This 58-minute film will inspire you to think about the answers to these questions and the importance of nature in your own development. A panel discussion and Q&A period will follow, led by Janice Swaisgood, MA.
