Go WILD with Essex Wildlife Trust
This June, join hundreds of thousands of people taking part in 30 Days Wild. We're challenging you to do something a little bit wild every day: that's 30 Days of fun, exciting and simple Random Acts of Wildness. It's easy! We're giving you a free pack of goodies to help you plan your wild month, plus lots of ideas to inspire you to stay wild all throughout June (and beyond!).
Big Wild Weekend
The Big Wild Weekend is two days of wildlife and nature events taking place across the UK on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June, to celebrate the half way point of 30 Days Wild.
There are plenty of events for all ages and interests to get involved with at Essex Wildlife Trust’s visitor centres, come and celebrate the wildest weekend of the year!
What is 30 Days Wild?
30 Days Wild is the UK's month-long nature campaign run by The Wildlife Trusts. Now in its fifth year, sign up and take part with hundreds of thousands of people across the UK (and do your bit to help wildlife, too!). From little actions (like stopping to smell a flower on you way to the shops or taking a moment to watch squabbling sparrows in a hedge) to big things (like giving up single-use plastics for a month or writing to your MP about why nature matters), 30 Days Wild is all about re-connecting with the natural world around you and doing a little bit of good for wildlife.
What's in your pack?
When you sign up, you'll receive a pack full of wild goodies! You'll get a wall chart, with a calendar (to help you plan your month) and an awesome poster! You'll also get a booklet packed full of ideas to help you go wild, a set of super stickers, and some wildflower seeds to brighten up your garden or window box!
Why take part?
Why take part? It's not just wildlife that 30 Days Wild helps; you'll feel the benefits, too! We're all a part of nature,and nature needs to be a part of our lives. Over the past four years, The Wildlife Trusts have been working with the University of Derby to find out about the impact that 30 Days Wild has on people taking part. Spending time outdoors can make you feel happier, healthier and closer to nature, as well as helping people to take more actions to help wildlife.
