WildWorkshops' aim is to engage young children with the natural world

Understanding nature and appreciating its complexity and beauty can enrich lives and help develop a deeper respect for the world we live in.

School visits introduce local wildlife and allow the children to learn about their lives and habits in a structured 'scientific' way.

Sessions link elements of the science curriculum to what is happening 'right-now' in the fields and gardens around us, the focus is always hands-on and practical.

Since forming in 2007, WildWorkshops has worked in hundreds of schools across the region. With a blossoming word-of-mouth reputation for exciting and enthusiastic shows that keep schools calling back year after year, you'll need to book early.
