REVIEWS

'I work for a charity which holds sessions to help children with their literacy skills and confidence. We had the pleasure of having a visit from Beth at Wild City who set up some nature based activities for the children.

She did an incredible job at delivering an exciting and engaging session and was brilliant with the children.It was amazing seeing all the creativity she inspired in them. It was lovely to see them show such a passion for nature. There were some really creative, hilarious and sweet tree's/messages about nature. They had a blast, we had a blast. It was a great couple of days!'
