A visit to All Things Wild can be tailored to meet your needs; from a self-led visit, to including a range of activities such as animal encounters and education activity sessions. For more details about prices, please contact our team via [email protected].
Our education activity sessions have been developed to meet the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework and the National Curriculum. The activities are based around our collection at All Things Wild and where possible bring in practical experiences. Our main sessions are listed below, however if you would like a different session or have any questions, please get in touch.
