Get ready to do something wild every day during June with the 30 Days Wild challenge for 2020 run by the Wildlife Trusts.
- Make time for nature
- Explore wild places near where you live
- Share your love of nature and wildlife
Connecting with nature and spending time in wild spaces and places is scientifically proven to alleviate stress, balance our emotions and even boost our immune system. In the current climate of enforced lockdown, anything which helps to improve our mental health is welcome and what better way than to find a way to incorporate nature into your daily life.
Big changes and large projects are not necessary and a little effort goes a long way to encourage wildlife into your space. This can be a mini-pond made from a washing-up bowl, giving up part of your garden to a wood pile or uncut grass or feeding the birds all year round and not just in winter.
The Wildlife Trusts have great ideas for introducing wildlife to your garden so take a look at Go Wild!
