We believe every childhood should be wild!

We have been helping Shropshire children explore and experience the natural world for more than 50 years! 

Take a look below at how you can help your child go wild. 



Our weekly toddler group for under 5's during term time. Join us at The Cut, Shrewsbury every Wednesday morning and Alderford Lake, Whitchurch every Thursday morning for lots of fun! A great opportunity for children to discover the natural world within a safe environment.
