Inspired by European Forest Kindergartens, a handful of teachers in the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire began dedicating one day-per-week to nature-based play and learning. The idea has caught the attention of parents and educators nationwide. Regionally, dozens of classrooms now spend frequent time in wild spaces, cooking over campfires, and learning and playing outdoors. This film follows a well-received set of case studies of Forest Day programs at Mount Lebanon School (NH), Hartland Elementary (VT) and Ludlow Elementary (VT).
