Are you ready for 30 Days Wild this June?  For those of you who don't know about it, it's a 30 day nature challenge!

The Wildlife Trusts are running this event again this year – and no matter where you are, you can join in!

The idea is that we all join their nature challenge:   to do something wild each day – a random act of wilderness – during the month of June.

All the family can get involved, and so can businesses, care-homes, schools, youth groups – although I appreciate that things are a bit different this year, to say the least.

Over 91,000 have signed up for it so far – you need to register which is free to do.

You’ll get a free downloadable pack of goodies to help you plan your wild month, and lots of other ideas, too.  Watch your emails for additional fun things such as instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography

This is a great chance to get involved with nature and you don’t need a garden to do it – you can come up with your own wild nature things to do, too; the main thing is to do one wild thing a day.  None of it need take long, either – so no excuses about not having the time!!

Last year, some of the ideas included:

  • Go stargazing
  • Sit in a wild spot
  • Write a poem about a wild place
  • Watch the clouds in the sky
  • Organise a mini litter-pick
  • Save a spider!
  • Plant a bee-friendly plant in a pot or border
  • Listen to the dawn chorus
  • Get involved in a citizen-science project

And tons more!

The pack contents vary, depending on whether you register as your & your family, a care-home, a business, or a school/group.  Even if you can’t do some of the ideas in June, you can always think of other wild activities to do, and keep the idea going after the month is over!  For the Wildlife Trust’s Covid-19 statement, follow this link.

Fly off now to the Wildlife Trust’s website to register!
