You may have heard that the Wildlife Trust is encouraging everyone to go a little bit wild this June! So I thought I would try and participate in their new #30dayswild challenge. I’ve signed up quite late ( still waiting for my pack) but the general gist of the campaign is to get people to make nature a part of their everyday life. Each day in June the aim is to spend a little time appreciating wildlife, nature and the great outdoors. This could be something as simple as spending a few minutes sowing some seeds one day, feeding the birds another day, climbing a tree, paddling in a stream etc etc. I probably won’t climb a tree. Maybe I will hug one instead!
Here are a few ideas that I hope to try.
Make a daisy chain.
Play Poohsticks in a stream.
Use a wild plant such as elderflowers or wild garlic in a recipe.
Paddle in a stream.
Identify some types of cloud.
Go for a picnic.
Chase a butterfly.
Take my Ladybird book ‘What to look for in Summer’ out and about and see how much our Great Outdoors has changed since it was published in the 1950s.
Visit a local Nature Reserve.
I hope to document what I get up to on Instagram and twitter and of course on this blog. Look for #30dayswild on Twitter if you fancy joining in too. 🙂 Or check out this link.
