Earlier this year I was introduced to the Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild Campaign. This month-long nature challenge aims to get people doing something wild every day for 30 days. So, every day this June we’ve been trying to do a daily ‘Random Act of Wildness’. Anything from bug hunting to bird watching.
Admittedly some days have been tougher than others. The weather this month has been terrible and the rain has limited what we can do outside. Despite this it’s been fun. It has definitely made me feel more connected to nature and I am spending more time studying my surroundings.
Our highlights so far have been bird watching in the rain, exploring the wilder side of a city, picking flowers and watching the bees in the garden. If the weather improves I would love to go for a walk somewhere new or do some yoga outside.
We have found it relatively easy to find something to do every day but, if you are stuck for ideas there is a 30 Days Wild app and a friendly Facebook group packed with ideas from other people.
You can follow our adventures over on the Green-fingered Mum Facebook page. It would be great to know if you are taking part and what you’ve done as part of the challenge.
