This June, can you do something wild every day for a month?

Make room for nature this June - no matter where you are or how busy your life! When you sign up to the challenge, the Wildlife Trust will send you a pack full of ideas, encouragement and Random Acts of Wildness. You’ll also receive a funky wallchart to track your progress, a wild badge, and regular blasts of inspiration throughout June to help you make nature part of your life.

What is a Random Act of Wildness?

A Random Act of Wildness is any thing that you can do in an average working day to bring a little nature into your life. They can take a few seconds, a few minutes, or if you lose yourself completely, a few hours! We've got 101 ideas below - but you can make up your own, too!

We are encouraging all children at GLPA to sign up with their families for this exciting activity.

Sign up today HERE!
