It’s the 1st June and that can only mean one thing… today is the start of 30 Days Wild! For those who don’t know, this is a challenge to carry out a ‘random act of wildness’ everyday (or as many as you can!) throughout June, to encourage people to get closer to nature – wherever we happen to live and work.
What is a random act of wildness?
The website states ‘a Random Act of Wildness is any thing that you can do in an average working day to bring a little nature into your life. They can take a few seconds, a few minutes, or if you lose yourself completely, a few hours!’
So in other words, it can be anything that helps you connect with nature! There are tonnes of ideas on their website and you can also download their app, so you never need to be stuck for inspiration!
You can also check out my previous 30 Days Wild posts for ideas and inspiration too! You can find a whole section dedicated to it under the nature tab on my menu, or click here.
The Wildlife Trusts
The challenge is an annual event throughout June, run by The Wildlife Trusts. I am sure most of you will have heard of them, but incase you haven’t (where have you been?!) they describe themselves as ‘a grassroots movement that believes we need nature and it needs us.‘ I couldn’t agree more! Find more information on The Wildlife Trusts website and check out your local branch.
Living Life Wild
This is the third year of 30 Days Wild for us personally. For the previous two years I have signed up to their blogger challenge; the first year I took part I got shortlisted as a finalist. Then last year I was highly commended as the final runner up in my category. So I am pretty pleased with those achievements to say the least!
This year however, due to the level of my other commitments at present, I have sadly taken the (difficult) decision not to officially take part in the challenge this year. However, I will of course still very much be supporting the idea behind the challenge, and participating in a more low key way! Just less heavy on the actual blogging!!!
30 Days Wild… Our Way
As the name of my blog suggests, we do like to do things in our own way sometimes! So this year, I will be throwing myself (gently) into the challenge by creating an a – z of my previous years highlights, along with a few new activities, and a selection of guest posts too! So there will still be plenty on the 30 Days Wild theme appearing on my blog throughout the month – just not quite in the usual 30 Days Wild format!
So do stay tuned! More coming soon…
Last but not least, would you like to be featured in one of my posts?
