30 Days Wild - Places to Visit in Essex

The Wildlife Trusts 30 Days Wild is back this June! The idea is to dedicate a moment everyday throughout June to connect to nature. Whether its writing in a nature journal, alfresco lunch breaks or exploring a new nature reserve, it only needs to be a few, uninterrupted minutes to really feel the benefits of nature.

We all know how important nature is for our physical and mental wellbeing. Why not take part this year and see if you can feel the difference? Sign up!
