Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust
The 'Generation Wild' project aims to provide children across the UK, especially those from economically disadvantaged communities, with opportunities to experience and interact with wetlands and their wildlife. Through visits to their local wetland centres, children will take part in a range of 'wild experiences' such as den-building, tree-climbing, pond-dipping, barefoot walks and hand feeding of birds.
The project will provide further opportunities to extend their contact with nature, by offering free family visit vouchers to all participating children so they can return with their family. Simple activities for families will be designed with involvement from children, parents/carers and teaching staff, ensuring they are relevant and appealing to the children and their families.
Further nature-based activity back in the local community will be encouraged through a Generation Wild Award scheme.
