After 30 Days Wild in June, we've got loads of ways to stay wild all year...
Across the UK in June people enjoyed doing 'random acts of wildness' to celebrate nature, from listening to birdsong and planting flowers in their gardens to exploring ancient woodlands and insect spotting in wildflower meadows.
30 Days Wild is a very open challenge, and so many people took part: over 350,000 people signed up across the whole country, with over 10 million little 'acts of wildness' taking place, connecting people to nature every day for a whole month.
But it doesn't have to stop here. It's been proven that getting closer to nature is good for your health - and all your posts full of joy and excitement at finding bees, flowers and birds and taking time out to appreciate nature have only reinforced that idea. So let's keep at it! All of our ideas for wild things to do can be used all year, and you can still download our free app to get inspiration.
We run events, workshops and open days all year, and have over 100 nature reserves across our three counties just waiting to be explored. Sign up for our free monthly e-news and keep in touch with everything we've got going on all year.
And if you really want to support our work, why not join the Wildlife Trust BCN. If you pay by Direct Debit, you'll get a free book showing you all the best places to see wildlife near you, as well as our members' magazine packed full of inspiring wild stories and images from around the three counties.
