Nature supplies the ingredients and we make the recipe!
Urban Wild is based in the city of Calgary, AB, Canada. Program activities and walks are designed with the 2-6 year old crowd in mind. Programs specific for older children (6-9) offered on request. Children must bring an adult companion.
A sprinkle of nature inspired activities
A dollop of family led nature walks
A scoop of child led play (free play)
Urban Wild programs are designed with these goals in mind:
Engage the whole family in nature and its associated benefits.
Connect families to seasonal change, animal activities and local plants.
Build family capacity to explore the outdoors together through out the seasons.
Support family connection and well being.
Inspire curiosity for the natural world.
Nurture future stewards of the Earth.
Hear what parents are saying:
“What I enjoyed was not having to prepare anything but a snack and arrive at a group where I could just follow your lead and the lead of the kids.”
“It takes away from the stresses of everything that happens all week long and just a chance to go outside and play together was key for us.”
“When given the opportunity it seems we are perfectly capable of finding happiness in nature.”
