This June, take the challenge in 2019 and do one wild thing every day! Why? It's 30 Days Wild!
It’s easy! We want you to do something wild every day throughout June: that’s 30 simple, fun and exciting Random Acts of Wildness. And there's so much to do and see in Staffordshire!
It might seem like a no-brainer, but The Wildlife Trusts have been working with the University of Derby to prove that spending time in nature is good for you. 30 Days Wild is all about taking a little bit of time every day to do something a little bit wild, so take the challenge and you might just find yourself feeling a little bit healthier, happier and wilder!
The campaign is now live for 2019 and you can sign-up for your FREE pack! Schools, businesses, individuals and families can all take part.

The benefits of spending time in nature are especially important for the elderly and vulnerable, who can suffer from anxiety and confusion, and can feel disconnected from friends, family and the community beyond their care home. Even a little time spent in nature can decrease feelings of stress, depression and bewilderment. Nature has so many stimuli that will help improve cognitive function, and aid sensory and reminiscence therapy.
