We’ll be the first to admit, you don’t run into something like Wilder every day. But don’t be alarmed. He might look like a cross between a mountain goat and bigfoot, but he’s going to be your new best friend. Because he’s on a mission to help your kids rediscover all the benefits waiting for them just outside your door, where things are a little wilder, a little happier, and a whole lot healthier.

Every so often, something like Wilder comes along and changes everything.

Remember how much fun you used to have playing outside? Where puddles became oceans, sticks became boats, and trees loomed over it all like enchanted castles? You might not have known it, but Wilder was with you then. And now he's back to show a whole new generation the magic of this great big, wonderfully wild world.

Just when you thought Wilder wasn’t real, you bump into him.

You may have forgotten him, but he hasn’t forgotten you. And here’s your chance to get reacquainted. Maybe snap a picture or two, share a hug and a couple of high fives. He’ll be all over Colorado in the next few months. And it will be just like old times.

Leave it Wilder.

Wilder has teamed up with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) to keep the great outdoors, well, great. With Wilder as their trail guide, Coloradans are learning everything about playing outside responsibly, such as staying on trails and what to do when nature calls. Want to join the cause? VOC relies on thousands of volunteers to work on outdoor stewardship projects across Colorado –from city parks and foothills, to alpine meadows and peaks. You and your kids can take part in the fun by clicking the button below to join in.
