Imagine being afraid of nature, because all you’ve known is the streets. Imagine a mentor takes you to the river for the first time, and hikes along the river, and your eyes open….
That’s what Alisha Camacho is doing with her students in Anacostia and she’s producing a documentary about it called “Anacostia Unplugged.” Camacho, one of GCM's videographers, developed this online documentary series about how going outside is saving lives, preserving the environment, and empowering communities along the Anacostia River while working with kids as an environmental educator.
Alisha explains how the kids respond to nature, and her inspiration for the film to Green Connections host Joan Michelson in this compelling interview. The documentary series will follow the lives of individuals living along the Anacostia River, and show their journey as they reconnect with the natural environment along this historically neglected and polluted Watershed.
