Join in a busy programme of outdoor activities during March

Here's the schedule:

Project Wild Thing Poster

Thursday 5th March – Film Screening ‘Project Wild Thing’, Phoenix School, 6pm.

Project Wild Thing is a film led movement to get more kids (and their folks!) outside and reconnecting with nature. The film is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.
