ESCAPE THE STRESS OF CITY LIFE
“It’s hard for me to get out of the city. I like to sit in the sun and watch the birds over the pond. It’s very relaxing and the air is so clean.”

– Participant

FEEL LIKE A KID AGAIN
“Every flower, animal, and star reminded her of another happy childhood story, and I was amazed by the ways nature brought back the same joy it had brought her in the stories she was recalling.”

– Operation Wild Staff

NATURE IN THE CITY
“…every participant took a wildflower bouquet home with them. One man told me about how the wildflowers had lasted a whole week on his kitchen counter and made the whole house smell wonderful.”

– Operation Wild Staff

MAKE NEW FRIENDS
“…he fed a horse a carrot from between his teeth, sat on the floor in the barn beside a pig feeding it lettuce, traipsed through the garden picking tomatoes, and told us lots of stories about his childhood and how wonderful it is to live in the country.”

– Operation Wild Staff

Operation Wild is about more than making nature accessible, it’s an opportunity to explore the beauty of the world around us, so we can cultivate a love for it that inspires us to care for it. It’s an inclusive space to make new friends and find a place of belonging in our local community. It’s an invitation to reconnect with nature and feel rejuvenated.
