Join Us For Our Annual Nature Challenge
This June, join thousands of people taking part in our annual nature challenge, #30DaysWild! We want you to do one wild thing a day throughout the whole month: for your health, wellbeing and for the planet.
That’s 30 simple, fun and exciting Random Acts of Wildness. Back for its sixth year, 2020’s challenge is more important than ever as we enjoy the wildlife close to our homes and the solace enjoying nature can provide.
Can You Do Something Wild Every Day In June?
30 Days Wild is for everyone – wherever you live, whatever your age! This year, all the amazing resources will be available exclusively online and include a colourful wallchart, a wild bingo game, colour-in window poster and a passport log-book with ideas to record wonderful wild actions – including crafting with nature or going plastic-free for a day, to taking action for bugs, bees and butterflies in your garden.
People signing up will receive more ideas from The Wildlife Trusts throughout June. For extra ‘bonus’ items, keep an eye on your emails for additional, fun activities, from instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography.
Connecting with nature has a positive effect on our health
Research shows that taking part in 30 Days Wild is good for you. People say they felt happier, healthier and more connected to nature after taking part. Studies also show that when people feel connected to nature, they are more likely to care for it.
30 Days Wild is so much fun and June is one of the best times of the year to see wildlife – it’s the month when everything’s fluttering, singing, nesting or blooming! Thousands of people look forward to taking part sharing their special random acts of wildness. Whilst we’re staying in and near our homes this year, you can join a fabulous online community and share your ideas with hundreds of other people using #30DaysWild.
