30 Days Wild

Monday 1st May 2017

This June, it’s all about nature – for everybody, everywhere, every day – with The Wildlife Trusts’ annual challenge, ‘30 Days Wild’. Take part and register now!

You can enjoy nature on your doorstep, as well as the ‘great outdoors’. Our list of inspiring ‘Random Acts of Wildness’ provide practical, fun and quirky ideas for connecting with the wild world around us. Why not spend an evening stargazing, build a bughouse, enjoy mindfulness in a meadow, or even sit in the garden: sipping a G&T and watching butterflies! You can spend a few minutes or a few hours each day enjoying nature – how you do it is up to you …

North Wales Wildlife Trust will be running wild events for all the family throughout June. You could even join us for our launch event, the ‘Cemlyn Creature Count, at Cemlyn NWWT Nature Reserve, Anglesey on Saturday 3 June (10:00-13:00). This fun, family-friendly event is for experts and absolute beginners, and includes rockpooling, bug-hunting and birdwatching: field equipment and ID guides will be provided. How many species will you spot?

Finally, it’s official – a daily dose of nature, even in bite-size chunks, is good for you.

The impact of taking part in 30 Days Wild has previously been tracked by academics at the University of Derby. Their study found that people who did something ‘wild’ each day for a month, felt happier, healthier and more connected to nature. From walking barefoot in the park to feeding garden birds, all sorts of activities proved positive for people – with added benefits for the natural world too.

Frances Cattanach, Trust Director, North Wales Wildlife Trust says:
“It’s very easy to get caught up in our virtual worlds, when all around us there is an amazing natural world which can do us the power of good. Dip your toes in the water, try a Random Act of Wildness and see how you can re-start your natural connection.”
