Nature Kids

Standard

One of the great things about technology and social media is the way we can make connections with people all over the world. This has given me an opportunity to network with others who feel the same way that I do on many issues, especially environmental ones. Part of that networking comes from sharing information and sharing contacts. It was through this kind of networking and communicating that I met and got to work with Kenny Ballentine in California. I first posted about him in November of last year. Kenny is a filmmaker extraordinaire who happens to share a love of nature and the wish for children to spend more time in nature. He really practices what he preaches because he has a fantastic family that he does so much with in the great outdoors. Kenny has just completed his film Nature Kids and screenings for his movie will begin next month and the DVD will be available for purchase in the summer. You can watch some of the trailers for the movie at this vimeo channel or check out this website to discover the Nature Kids Institute.

  1. Hi Miranda, yes you are correct about social media and the internet helping to connect people. We discovered your work by reading the Wild magazine and then looked up your videos on YouTUBE. We thank you for motivating us to launch our own blog. We have paid tribute to you in our first post which you can find on our site below. We are Canadians living in France but hope that we might meet you one day! http://arthurwildlifeblog.wordpress.com/2013/09/04/inspired-by-the-blue-trees/

    • Wow – that is so cool! I am thrilled to hear of others in different parts of the world who feel as strongly about issues involving nature as I do. Thank you so much for your post and way to go for starting your own blog. Keep it up!
