And we're off! Day one of 30 Days Wild and here at the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire we're embracing the challenge with a blog by staff from all over our three counties. We can't wait to see what you all get up to, too, so do share on social media with #30DaysWild.
So, to kick us off, one of my favourite wild things to do is get the grass between my toes. The stubbly just-mown, the caught-in-your-toes overgrown, the mostly-moss, the damp roadside verge or even the well-kept meadow path - they all have their own intriguing foot-feel. And, somehow, the sensations give me a stronger physical connection to the wild world. More than just looking, or photographing or taking note. It's a grounding, a tickling, a way to engage the senses, and it's so easy! Grass is all around us, and your sensitive soles are the perfect tool for the job.
