The Wildlife Trusts across the UK are offering a huge range of nature-tastic events during this year’s Big Wild Weekend, which runs from June 15th – 16th 2019.

This special weekend marks the middle of 30 Days Wild, The Wildlife Trusts’ annual nature challenge that dares people to do something wild every day in June.  This year is a record-breaker with over half a million people taking part.

During the Big Wild Weekend, join local Wildlife Trust guides and volunteers at over 50 events who will help you find bugs and minibeasts in meadows and ponds, identify birds, bats and butterflies or help you spot a red squirrel.

The Wildlife Trusts’ spokesperson for 30 Days Wild, Leanne Manchester said:

“Across the country, half a million people are doing Random Acts of Wildness for 30 Days Wild throughout June. The Big Wild Weekend is a fantastic opportunity for people to enjoy even more activities in some of the UK’s best wild havens.

“There’s a fabulous range of fun-filled activities on offer this weekend and we look forward to welcoming everyone. June is a great month to go wild and you’ll find our beautiful nature reserves and greenspaces in towns, the countryside and along coastlines, they’re awash with colour and buzzing with life. Come and explore with us!”
