#30DaysWild - 2017 Edition!

So I first did #30DaysWild last year, and you can go back and read all the blog posts here. I have decided to give it another go this year! 

This year, I will be starting a new job in June, and as well as that I will still be working at my current job. Blogging will be sparse, few and far between, haphazard and late – but I will try and update regularly, or at least back date posts so I have a blog a day.

At my current job with Warwickshire County Council, I will be leading three ranger-led activity days, specifically for #30DaysWild. If you’re around and can get to the park, you can see more on the facebook page and book your place/s for the events. 

My new job role isn’t yet 100% as to what I’ll be doing with them, but I may be leading groups and conservation sessions. Hopefully I’ll have lots of chances and opportunities to get outside and get wild next month, even if I just walk barefoot on the grass once a day.

Every June the Wildlife Trusts run a campaign called 30 Days Wild. This is my second year taking part, and the idea is to encourage wildness, exploration and an involvement with the natural world. The daily things can be anything, from walking barefoot, to doing outdoor yoga, or growing veg to hunting out woodlice under a stone. Little things that help you reconnect with nature! Random Acts of Wildness are also fully encouraged.
