Launched today, The Wildlife Trusts’ annual nature challenge 30 Days Wild encourages people to do something wild every day for the month of June. Last year 30 Days Wild was a record breaker with over 350,000 people taking part.
Research reveals 30 Days Wild helps people to connect to nature and that noticing natural beauty makes people happier and want to care for it.
This year’s Big Wild Weekend will take place on 15 -16 June, right in the middle of 30 Days Wild, with Wildlife Trusts across the UK offering a huge array of nature-tastic events. Join Norfolk Wildlife Trust at Cley and Salthouse Marshes, for free nature-inspired activities running all day
in the centre and on the reserve.
Head of People and Wildlife at Norfolk Wildlife Trust, David North said:
“Last year in June I walked barefoot on my lawn, got up early to listen to birdsong, visited a nature reserve, went for a wild swim, lay on my back and watched clouds slowly pass overhead, sat on shingle shore listening to waves at sunset, and walked through a wood under a canopy of green leaves listening to the wind in the tree tops. These were just a few of the Random Acts of Wildness I tried and though it was nearly a year ago the experiences are still fresh in my mind. Just thinking about them today makes me feel good. This June we hope you will feel inspired to give it a go yourself and no matter how small the action, it all counts!”
