Wild Place Outdoor Learning is an exciting woodland project run by Bristol Zoo. Wild Place Outdoor Learning aims to inspire children and adults of all ages, providing opportunities to experience beautiful ancient woodland, learn new skills and meet new people.
Whether it is a den-building birthday party, school Forest School sessions, summer holiday events, adult bushcraft weekends or family firecraft, we have the event for you.
With acres of ancient broadleaf woodland and meadows, this is a great opportunity to get away from it all and enjoy the natural world. Situated on the outskirts of Bristol, just off junction 17 of the M5, Wild Place is no more than 20 minutes from the centre of Bristol and offers a truly magical and wild experience.
Our Wild Place Outdoor Learning Officer, Jackie Roby, is a trained teacher and has worked for many years in education, (notably with excluded children of all ages) before training as a Forest School leader. She has also worked with the Avon Gorge and Downs Wildlife Project, based here at Bristol Zoo, and is well equipped to guide children and adults on their adventure in the great outdoors.
Is it safe?
Health and Safety are vitally important at Wild Place. All activities and sites are risk assessed by our trained Forest School Leader who is also trained in Outdoor First Aid. A first aid kit and mobile phone are carried at all times. Accident and emergency procedures are in place for the site, as is insurance. All Forest School Leaders have up-to-date CRB checks.
