Kids nowadays are spending more time indoors – in front of computer screens – than ever before. It’s sad, isn’t it?

Long gone are the days before computers and iPads when kids actually spent most of their time climbing trees and making mud castles, rather than playing Angry Birds.

We now have to make a real effort to bring our kids up to appreciate the wilderness and play in the outdoors.

At the same time obesity rates are increasing and more children are being diagnosed with ADHD, our kid’s connections with the environment around them is dwindling.

Two adventurous female filmmakers have decided to change that.

They are making a film called Born Wild, which tells the stories of three mothers and their pursuit to bring up their kids to love and enjoy adventures in the great outdoors.

Shot in Utah, Colorado and California, it captures the joys (and struggles) that come with rock climbing, backpacking and night kayaking with a young family.

We interviewed Morgan Brechler – one of the inspirational mamas featured – last month.

The trailer looks awesome – we can’t wait to watch the first episode.

The Kickstarter has just gone live – and they need your help to make this amazing series happen. Click here to support Born Wild.
