Nature Play: An Award-Winning Documentary Screening

THE MOST ENDANGERED SPECIES IN THE WILD TODAY: OUR CHILDREN. 

Join us for a FREE screening of this AWARD-WINNING documentary that highlights the importance of allowing children the RIGHT to experience and enjoy the essential and special nature of being outdoors. Nature is an inimitable teacher. (Registration link will go live on April 1st)

Education, children and nature have an unbreakable connection that must be acknowledged. Risk, within reason, is good for the development, as it builds motor and life skills. We must bring children and nature back from the brink of extinction.

Doors will open at 6:30 and the screening will begin promptly at 7:00. Donations are welcomed and appreciated. Blue Ridge Montessori School is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit. 

Beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and food will be available for purchase. 

On-site childcare will also be available courtesy of Blue Ridge Montessori. Registration for childcare will be open through the link to register with the event. Link will go live on 4/1.
