About Natalie

Natalie is our Wild Child Officer, her role is to engage and reconnect children and families with the natural environment that surrounds them through outdoor play and learning. She is working with a team of volunteers and sessional workers to deliver Wildplay in the South West Peak. Specific events include Wildlings (for 6 month-5 year olds), #Getwild (for 6-13 year olds), Wildskills (for 12-13 year olds), and Wildfamiles (accessible to all), alongside in school and afterschool Wildplay clubs.

Natalie has always worked with children and prior to joining the SWPLP, her most recent background was in outdoor education where she worked for 5 years at outdoor education centres in Staffordshire instructing activities such as climbing, mountain biking, bushcraft and leading day trips to sites including the Roaches. Natalie has a Post Graduate Diploma in Forestry, a BSc degree in Physical Geography and is a qualified level 3 Forest School Practitioner; she also holds many other practical qualifications such as the Walking Group Leader Award.

Natalie’s experience in the academic and working world means that she has both knowledge of the natural environment and an appreciation of enjoying it through outdoor play, and hopes to bring this together in her role across the South West Peak.
