Staffordshire residents invited to sign up for 30 Days Wild challenge

The county’s largest nature conservation charity is calling on people to make time for nature and sign up for a nationwide campaign taking place this June.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is inviting individuals, groups and families to take part in this year’s 30 Days Wild campaign.

Last year, over 3,000 people from the county signed up to take part in 30 Days Wild and people can now sign up for their free pack of ideas by visiting wildlifetrusts.org/30DaysWild

It is open for individuals, families, care homes, businesses and schools to sign up to.

Now in its seventh year, 30 Days Wild encourages everyone to enjoy nature in our gardens through daily Random Acts of Wildness; listening to bird song, gazing at butterflies, growing borage for bees and much more. Evidence shows that taking part can also make us happier and healthier.

Research from the University of Derby has shown that spending time in nature is good for you, for fitness, mental health and wellbeing.

Jon Owen, Press and Social Media, said: “30 Days Wild is a much-loved challenge and it’s set to be an exciting month for everyone taking part.

“Last year, we were delighted 3,000 people signed up to take part and we want that figure to be even higher this year..

“We are all in need of opportunities to engage with nature as much as we can, and 30 Days Wild gives us the opportunity to do just that.”
