Project Wild Thing – reconnect your kids with nature

Current location in the site

Selwyn District Council is bringing the internationally acclaimed film documentary, ‘Project Wild Thing’, to Selwyn.

The UK film has kickstarted a movement to encourage children to play outdoors and reconnect with the natural world.

Project Wild Thing is supported by The Wild Network, a collaborative movement of over 1000 organisations and thousands of individuals committed to getting kids outdoors. By ‘rewilding’ childhood, Project Wild Thing aims to improve children’s health, happiness, and respect for the environment.

At this free event, Selwyn caregivers will enjoy a screening of the documentary, while their children experience a variety of play activities at the Rubicon Valley Tourist Centre with the TimberNook outdoor education team. The event will also include a farm display, horse trek, rock skimming, outdoor challenges and jet boating. The jet boating and horse back tours will be discounted and are at attendees’ cost.

Selwyn’s Project Wild Thing takes place on Sunday 8 October from 11am–3pm at the Rubicon Valley Tourist Centre, Otarama Road, Springfield.

Registrations are open now, closing on Monday 2 October. Limited spaces are available. This event is for children aged 5–12 years old and up to two caregivers.
