Outdoor play is critical to the development of children now more than ever. The benefits have been proven to be endless, so what are you waiting for? Join us & the Learn Wild movement & experience the outdoors in a whole new way! Whatever your "wild" may be, we provide something for everyone. Whether it's hiking, backyard play, public spaces, or even your balcony- we want to give families the confidence to Learn Wild! We offer a variety of resources, inspiration, & local adventure spots for nature-based learning in the wild for every child!
Learn Wild aims to answer your burning questions like, "We're outside, now what?" "What's the best outdoor gear for kids?" "Where are the best kid-friendly hikes?" and "What if I don't have a backyard?" Whatever your question, we want to provide you with answers & solutions!
Our core beliefs are that play IS learning, nature has provided us with the best learning materials, and there's no better classroom than the great outdoors!
