Are you ready to go wild?

June is a perfect month to get out and about. The days grow longer and the sun warmer. Flowers are in full bloom. Fledglings leave their nests. It’s easy to connect with nature at this time of year, if you simply take a little time to do so. This is why the Wildlife Trust are challenging everyone to go 30 Days Wild this June.

Now, this doesn’t mean that you have to spend the whole month living in a tent in the middle of a field – unless, of course, that’s what you want to do! All you need to do to fulfill the challenge are 30 simple, fun and exciting Random Acts of Wildness.

So, what could you do? The possibilities are endless. You could:

  • hug a tree
  • stop to smell a flower
  • splash in a puddle
  • seek out your local wild areas
  • look for caterpillars
  • watch the bees
  • enjoy the sunset
  • walk in a wood
  • have a picnic by a pond
  • make a bee bath
  • plant some wildflower seeds
  • forage for some wild food
  • hang a bird feeder
  • walk on a beach
  • make a hedgehog highway
  • make a toad home
  • hang a butterfly feeder
  • do a 2 minute litter pick
  • write a poem
  • take part in a nature survey
  • go plastic free
  • pledge to help wildlife
  • sign a petition

and lots, lots more

30 Days Wild is a perfect opportunity to connect with nature. Your little Random Acts of Wildness, when placed alongside those of everyone else joining in, could have a great positive impact on your local environment. And don’t forget to share your Random Acts of Wildness on social media using #30DaysWild. By spreading awareness, you can inspire others to act as well.

If you’d like to join in with 30 Days Wild, it’s ‘s not too late to sign up on the Wildlife Trust website. Once you’ve done that there are all sorts of resources that you can download to help you decide what to do, plus a whole website full of ideas.
