This June, sign up to The Wildlife Trust's annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild! They are encouraging you and your family 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!
By signing up, you’ll get a free, downloadable pack of goodies to help you plan your wild month, plus lots of ideas to inspire you to stay wild all throughout June - and beyond!
They will also be sending out extra ‘bonus’ items and fun activities to those that have signed up - from instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography.
Sign up at The Wildlife Trust website and start planning your Random Acts of Wildness for June!
The Wildlife Trust have also provided a set of additional ideas for homeschooling for 30 Days Wild, including My A-Z of Nature (an outdoor activity for younger children), Design your own bird and How to make your own binoculars.
And if you are looking for yet more activities and videos to find out about local wildlife, go to Wildlife Watch YouTube Channel and join in with Wildlife Wednesdays!
In the current nature and climate emergency, we’re seeing more people affected by eco-anxiety – feeling overwhelmed by the damage to our environment and not knowing what to do to help. This, along with other stresses, aren’t good for us. But with 30 Days Wild from the Wildlife Trusts you can incorporate some simple nature-based activities into your daily life and feel the benefit. These activities can lower blood pressure, take our minds away from our day-to-day concerns and help us relax, as well as providing simple ways to help wildlife.
