SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — "One With Life," the conservation film co-produced by Audra Haddock Martenot, adjunct faculty member at Hagerstown Community College, and Rob Owens, president and owner of Eagle Rock Productions, will debut Tuesday at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown.
Filmed by Eagle Rock Productions, "One With Life" provides an intimate look at a growing, worldwide movement that emphasizes the need for people to connect with nature, with a special emphasis on the importance of engaging and encouraging children to explore the great outdoors.
"Today, the health of children is a great issue and the idea is to encourage them to get back to nature, to get away from the television and go play outside," Martenot said. "In their hearts, everybody knows that humans and nature are connected, but people get busy and they forget. This film is another step to try to make people aware of the importance of nature: We can't exist without it and it can't exist without us. It's a way to try to bridge the gaps between nature and ourselves."
