Linn Park, Glasgow
W.I.L.D. is a community interest company that has been created out of our love of nature and the desire to share this passion with local communities.
As Forest School Practitioners we can teach skills to anyone who comes to our sessions, focusing on how the park can be used for their own benefit and in turn how we can benefit the park. We inspire local people to use the park more, learn how they can conserve it, whilst connecting with nature and with each other.
W.I.L.D’s Forest School will run as blocks of outdoor sessions led by our Forest School Practitioners. Sessions will continue right throughout the year in local urban woodland.
Our aim is to provide participants with the opportunity to explore and experience the natural world through play and practical activities which will help promote confidence, independence and self-esteem. Learning how to look after themselves, the people around them and the environment we live in.
By using the natural environment and the participant’s interests we hope to stimulate imagination, creativity and enquiry skills. Participants will work with tools, on self-initiated learning and understand boundaries of behaviour, both physical and social.
