When Learning Comes Naturally

On Tuesday, September 1 at 9pm WKNO will air WHEN LEARNING COMES NATURALLY. It documents innovative outdoor-education programs around the country created to help children understand and experience the wonders and joys of nature.

The film explores the immediate and lasting benefits of introducing young children to "green" experiences. Natural spaces — in the form of gardens, small trails and outdoor "green adventure" areas — allow for the discoveries and choices vital to child development and learning. In addition, outdoor education can cultivate in children a permanent connection with the natural world — a crucial ethic of environmental responsibility. Check it out!

Then you can take your kids (or just yourself) to the new "My Big Backyard" exhibit at the Botanic Gardens on Wednesday afternoon for free!
