This June, The Wildlife Trusts are encouraging us all to go wild. Their challenge is simple – carry out a Random Act of Wildness every day for 30 days. Random Acts of Wildness can be anything from feeding the birds in your garden to taking a lunchtime stroll. It’s simply about making time to connect with nature, or doing something small to help your local wildlife.
When you register to take part in 30 days wild you can do so as an individual, school or workplace. You will then be sent a free pack to help you plan your wild month. To get your free 30 Days Wild pack, which includes stickers, a wall chart and a seed paper flower register here. There are also lots of ideas to inspire you on the 30 Days Wild website.
Last year, we rose to the challenge and blogged our Random Acts of Wildness every day for the month of June. The kids and I had an amazing month, and loved spending time each day with nature. You can find all our 30 Days Wild craft and activity posts here, plus lots more inspiration on our #30dayswild pinterest board.
This year we plan to share lots more of our ideas to encourage you to get outside and spend time with nature. One such project is our Swallow Cam which we have built ourselves and which will allow us a window into the lives of the beautiful swallows that nest in our shed every year. You can check out our swallow cam live feed and our other nature videos over on our YouTube channel.
So whether it’s climbing a tree in the woods, or taking five minutes to watch a bee go from flower to flower make June your month for going a bit wild.
