Go WILD with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
30 Days Wild is The Wildlife Trusts' annual nature challenge across the UK where we ask the nation to do one 'wild' thing a day every day throughout June, including here in Nottinghamshire.
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. Alongside all of these benefits, taking part in 30 Days Wild is scientifically proven to make you feel happier, healthier, and more connected to nature.
In 2020, more than half a million people got involved, from families and couples, to teachers, care homes and workplaces. Everyone's invited!
I’m a big fan of 30 Days Wild– I love being part of the surge of enthusiasm that emanates from everyone involved! Get creative and find 30 new ways to be inspired by the beauty of the outdoors and nature or be entertained by trying out new nature activities. It is especially important if you live in the city as nature is all around, just waiting to be found.
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 leading up to June too, from instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography.
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 six 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.
