Project Wild Thing Screening with Two Coyotes
Sep 01, 2014 03:24AM
Two Coyotes Wilderness School is launching a 365 Days of Nature for Kids campaign to get kids out in nature year-round, not just during the spring and summer. The campaign launch includes two free screenings of the 82-minute Project Wild Thing, sponsored by Natural Awakenings, on September 12 at 1:30 and 6:30pm. The event will take place at The Alexandria Room in Edmond Town Hall, located at 45 Main Street, Newtown. A panel discussion will follow each screening.
The PG-rated feature-length documentary, which stars and is directed by David Bond, takes a funny and accessible look at the increasingly fragile connection between children and nature. Determined to get his children up and out, Bond appoints himself as the marketing director for nature. With the help of branding and outdoor experts, he develops and launches a nationwide marketing campaign to get British children outside.
Two Coyotes Wilderness School is a non profit organization based in Newtown that is dedicated to nurture healthy, whole human beings through building self-awareness, community, and connecting people to nature. The school offers kids aged 5-16 ongoing, year-round outdoor programs, as well as summer camps. Their programs are based on the enduring wisdom of the ages and ancient wilderness skills.
