“I remember taking children outdoors on a night hike…I suddenly realized the children weren’t with me and I turned around and they were just amazed by the stars. They were mesmerized. They weren’t moving,” said Jan Oberkramer, the Executive Director of The Green Center in University City. “I was so humbled because as beautiful as (the stars) are, I see them and look at them all the time. These kids had never seen stars.”
Oberkramer is the guest on this edition of “Behind The Editor’s Curtain.”
Oberkramer talks with Don Corrigan about nature deficit disorder, the importance for all children to get outdoors, and what The Green Center is all about.
