A wildlife trust is urging Nottinghamshire people to answer the call of the wild next month and make the most of the great outdoors.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is calling on the people of Nottinghamshire to make room for nature this June, no matter where they live or how busy their lives are.

The charity, which cares for more than 60 sites including the Idle Valley and Attenborough Nature Reserves, wants is asking residents to join the thousands of people from across the UK that have already signed up for The Wildlife Trust’s annual 30 Days Wild campaign.

Once people sign up, the trust will send people a pack full of ideas, encouragement and ‘random acts of wildness’, which can be anything that can be done in an average working day to get a little closer to nature.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s head of communications Erin McDaid said: “The premise for the campaign is simple, we’re encouraging people to do something connected with wildlife or the natural world every day in June and to share their experiences with our and their fiends via social media.”

One of the keys to this campaign is the fact that local Wildlife Trusts provide a host of ideas and events to help people connect with nature across the UK.

She added: “Some people, myself included, have used the campaign as an excuse to do things you wouldn’t normally do, such as laying down in a meadow and looking up at the clouds or taking your shoes off and feeling the grass between your toes.”
