T351 Students - The following organizations would like longer, more in-depth videos:

  • The Bloomington Parks & Recreation Department would like two separate videos:
    • Leonard Springs Nature Day and Griffy Lake Nature Day Video. Description: The Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department facilitates a two programs in collaboration with MCCSC where 4th graders visit Griffy Lake Nature Preserve and 6th graders visit Leonard Springs Nature Park for a day of outdoor learning. The students rotate through stations related to our south central natural heritage while meeting state Science standards and getting them excited to pursue future career options in the life sciences. Prior to the park visit, our natural resource staff visits each 4th and 6th grade classroom to share information about their upcoming field trip. We would like to have short, separate videos to present to the students during these visits. The videos should be brief, efficient, and most importantly, engaging for the students. It should introduce what the students will learn, the rules and expectations during their time in the park, and the people involved in facilitating the program. We want this video to help our staff get the 4th and 6th graders excited about a fun day of learning at Griffy and Leonard Springs Nature Parks.
    • Trail Etiquette Campaign Video. The Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department continues to expand their multi-purpose trail system and bicyclists, strollers, runners, and dog walkers come in droves to use them. Knowing good trail etiquette prevents injury and makes the experience on trails enjoyable for everyone. Bloomington Parks and Recreation is launching a trail etiquette campaign to communicate basic trail use tips such as: use safe speeds, keep right-pass left, standing still? stand aside, mind your pets, be alert, know and follow the rules. We would like to have a short video illustrating these tips to share on our web site and throughout our campaign.
