The UK’s biggest nature challenge
30 Days Wild is The Wildlife Trusts' annual nature challenge where we ask the nation to do one 'wild' thing a day every day throughout June.
Your daily Random Acts of Wildness can be anything you like - litter-picking, birdwatching, puddle-splashing, you name it! But to help you on your way, The Wildlife Trusts will also provide you with a FREE postal or digital pack of goodies to inspire your wild month - including an activity passport and a wallchart to track your progress. Alongside all of these benefits, taking part in 30 Days Wild is scientifically proven to make you feel happier, healthier, and more connected to nature.
In 2020, more than half a million people got involved, from families and couples, to teachers, care homes and workplaces. Everyone's invited!
As well as events happening right here in our region this month, The Wildlife Trust's have lots of great activities, talks and quizzes for you to talk part in during 30 Days Wild this year.

Read more about Toby
Toby and his family have been members of Cheshire Wildlife Trust for years and love taking part in 30 Days Wild every year.
On his blog, Toby's Wildlife Adventures, Toby shares his love for wildlife and the natural world, from exploring nature reserves, sharing tips on how to help local wildlife and even writing to Sir David Attenborough!
Toby is no stranger to 30 Days Wild and has taken part for years. In previous years he's enjoyed tuning into things he may not have recognised before.
“One of the things that I did last year was going to my local park and smelling all of the different types of flowers,” he says. “I also collected feathers, leaves, sticks, moss, acorns and other things and made my very own wildlife picture. By doing 30 Days Wild you will learn more about the wildlife that lives around you so you can start caring more about nature than you have before. If we all did a little bit more it would really help a lot.”
