It’s that time of year again – 30 Days Wild is here!
Every June we ask you to make room for nature and commit to carrying out ‘Random Acts of Wildness‘. It doesn’t matter where you live, whether it be on the coast, in the middle of the countryside, or even in an urban jungle; we want you to get outside and experience everything our beautiful wildlife and wild places have to offer.
If you haven’t already, sign up now and make that promise to do something wild every day in June. You will gain access to your free 30 Days Wild pack, which includes a wallchart, a poster, and activity sheet and a spotting sheet, to help you go wild.
If you are more of a techno-whizz and would like to be able to carry around your guide to 30 Days Wild everywhere you go, including more than 100 ideas to help you get started, why not download our 30 Days Wild App.
Here at Warwickshire Wildlife Trust we are brimming over with ideas so we thought we would share a few with you.
1. Find a puddle and jump in it!
Who says splashing about in puddles is just for kids! We’ve been spoilt for choice recently with the amount of rain we have received, so get out there and find a puddle before they dry up with the sunnier weather!
2. Find a peaceful spot to think…
Sometimes when life gets busy all it can take is 5 minutes sitting somewhere peaceful and contemplative to make you feel grounded again. Take a walk on your lunch break, find somewhere quiet to sit, and just be in the moment. We particularly loved watching the ripples and listening to the birdsong at one of our pools here at Brandon Marsh Reserve.
3. Get foraging!
Sometimes it can be easy to forget how fulfilling it is to create something from scratch using your own two hands. It’s the perfect time of year to collect elder flowers and make your own cordial; just think how refreshing it will taste on a hot summers day! We think this simple recipe is a great place to start – now get out there and start harvesting!
Don’t forget to join in on social media using #30DaysWild, sharing your pictures, ideas and adventures! We love seeing what you get up to!
