30 Days Wild

Take part in 30 Days Wild

Go wild with Lancashire Wildlife Trust

Can you do one wild thing a day throughout the whole of June? Of course you can! Join thousands of people taking part in our annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild.

Go wild for your health, your wellbeing, wildlife and the planet.

What is 30 Days Wild?

30 Days Wild is a fun, feel-good challenge run by The Wildlife Trusts every June. Back for its sixth year, it brings people closer to nature where they live, taking small actions that can collectively have a big impact! From little things such as watching a bee feed from flowers or spotting birds from your window, to giving up single-use plastics for a month or going peat-free in your garden: every Random Act of Wildness counts.

If you want to see what others are getting up to, check out #30DaysWild on social media.

Why take part?

While nature needs us more than ever, the reverse is also true. We’re all part of nature, and it should be a part of our lives. Over the past five years, we've been working with the University of Derby to find out about the impact that 30 Days Wild has on participants. The results show that people feel happier and healthier after taking part, and for months after too!

Who are Lancashire Wildlife Trust?

The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside is part of the Wildlife Trusts movement. We're a grassroots conservation charity working alongside 46 other individual Wildlife Trusts in every corner of the UK, Alderney and the Isle of Man.

Our Wildlife Trust cares for 50 special wild places on your doorstep, from beautiful ancient woods and threatened peatlands to rugged limestone cliffs and inner city pockets of wildness. We protect and restore wildlife, campaign for a Wilder Future and inspire others to care for our precious natural world, on land and at sea.

By taking part in 30 Days Wild, you can help us achieve our mission of bringing people closer to nature and helping wildlife thrive once more.

Go peat-free

Peatlands are important wildlife habitats and huge carbon stores. Choosing peat-free compost and plants can help save them from destruction.
