About the event

The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire protects wildlife and cares for over 100 nature reserves across the three counties, including the wonderful Nene Wetlands. 

To allow us to continue our work in the Nene Wetlands, we need your help! This year we’re kicking off our 30 Days Wild campaign with a sponsored family Wild Waddle around Skew Bridge Lake. 

Dress up as your favourite animal, meet our colourful wetland creatures, complete the course and collect your medal and 30 Days Wild goody bag.

The Wild Waddle route is just under a mile in length on a hard surfaced path so is suitable for wheelchairs, buggies and all ages and fitness levels.

30 Days Wild

We are challenging you to do something wild every day in June. From listening to the birds to eating your lunch outside to drawing a picture of a flower, there are countless ways you can get closer to nature.

What are you waiting for?

Go wild this June!
