Launched in 2009, 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. The workshop will provide basic wildlife content, introduce activities in the guide and build skills and confidence needed for teaching children ages 3-7 in outdoor outings.
