Growing Up WILD is an early childhood education program that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them. Through its materials and training programs, it demonstrates how early childhood learning objectives can be reached through use of the outdoors and nature-themed activities combined with art, music, and play. It also builds the confidence of early childhood educators to lead outdoor explorations by providing ready-made activities, easily digestible background information, and high-quality personal training programs. All participants receive and activity guide with 27 hands-on nature-based activities. Targets children 3-7 years.
