Publisher's Description

You don't need to live in the country to have fun outdoors! Wild Cities is all about finding wild places in the city and making the most of opportunities to explore and enjoy all these places have to offer. You can have fun discovering city wildlife (e.g., do a bird survey from your window; build a squirrel obstacle course; make a bean home out of straws; track city nocturnal animals). Using natural resources to play and invent new games (e.g., play conkers; have a game of marbles using pebbles; make your own shuttlecock from pigeon feathers and a cork)
