Go WILD with the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire
Can you do one wild thing a day throughout the whole of June? We believe you can! Join thousands of people taking part in our annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild. Do it for your health, wellbeing, wildlife and the planet.
What is 30 Days Wild?
30 Days Wild is a fun, feel-good challenge run by The Wildlife Trusts every June. Back for its sixth year, it brings people closer to nature where they live, taking small actions that can collectively have a big impact. From little things such as watching a bee from your window or feeding the birds, to giving up single-use plastics for a month or digging a pond in your garden: every Random Act of Wildness counts. If you want to see what others are getting up to, just check out #30DaysWild on social media.
What's in a 30 Days Wild pack?
When you sign up, you'll be able to download a host of goodies to help you plan your month. You’ll have a wallchart, wildlife bingo, an activity passport and a nature table template. We’ll send you lots more resources throughout June too, from instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography. And it doesn't matter if you missed the start - join us any time through June!
Why take part?
While nature needs us more than ever, the reverse is also true. We’re all part of nature, and it should be a part of our lives. Over the past five years, we've been working with the University of Derby to find out about the impact that 30 Days Wild has on participants. The results show that people feel happier and healthier after taking part, and for months after too!
