Go WILD with the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire
It's finally here!
30 Days Wild 2021 has started and we have an exciting month of connecting with nature every day ahead of us. Follow our blog with daily activities to inspire your Random Acts of Wildness.
30 Days Wild is our annual nature challenge where we ask you to do something wild every day in June.
Your daily Random Acts of Wildness can be anything you like - litter-picking, birdwatching, puddle-splashing, you name it! But to help you on your way, The Wildlife Trusts will also provide you with a FREE postal or digital pack of goodies to inspire your wild month - including an activity passport and a wallchart to track your progress. Click the 'sign up' button below to receive your pack.
2020 was a bumper year, with over 5,000 people across Beds, Cambs and Northants joining more than half a million participants across the UK - that's a lot of people getting closer to nature! In fact, taking part in 30 Days Wild is scientifically proven to make you feel happier, healthier, and more connected to nature.
What is 30 Days Wild?
30 Days Wild is a fun, feel-good challenge run by The Wildlife Trusts every June. Back for its seventh 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.
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!
Who are The Wildlife Trusts?
The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement, made up of 46 individual Wildlife Trusts operating in every corner of the UK, Alderney and the Isle of Man. We care for 2,300 incredible wild places, from remote woods and wild rivers to inner city pockets of nature. We also look after the amazing wildlife that lives on our coasts and in our seas. By taking part in 30 Days Wild, you can help us to achieve our mission of bringing people closer to nature, and land and seas rich in wildlife.
The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire runs events, workshops and open days all year, and looks after over 100 nature reserves across our three counties. Sign up for our free regular e-news and keep in touch with everything we've got going on all year.
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.
