30 Days Wild 2017

May 15th, 2017
For the third year, I'm taking part in 30 Days Wild and I'm hoping some of you will join me again!





This is an event organised by The Wildlife Trust (in the UK) which runs throughout June and several people here joined in using the tags 30DaysWild and 30DaysWild2016

http://365project.org/tags/30dayswild
http://365project.org/tags/30dayswild2016



The idea is to spend some time outdoors each day - from a full days walking, climbing a mountain or a wildlife watching trip to the simplest of things like drinking your coffee in the garden in the morning, identifying a wildflower or feeding the birds.



You can find out a little more in the link below and sign up to receive your 30 Days Wild pack and join in - though you don't have to sign up to join in, you can just join in and tag your photos here! If you scroll down on the page linked below, you'll also find loads of ideas for 'random acts of wildness'!

30 Days Wild info & sign up



In 2015, I put together three blog posts each containing 30 'wild ideas' to offer a little inspiration for the challenge - I hope they will be of use to one or two of you who want to join in!

All you need to do to take part this June is tag your photos 30dayswild2017

I've been blogging 30 Days Wild since it began in 2015 at http://louises30dayswild.blogspot.co.uk (After the first 30 Days Wild, I carried it on and completed a whole 366 Days Wild!) and will be blogging my 30 Days Wild there again this June.



You can find my photos and daily wild activities by looking at my 365 project for the last two Junes ...

I hope I can tempt a few people here to join in with me and have a Wild June!




Remember, all you need to do to join in is tag your 30 Days Wild photos this June 30dayswild2017

I'd love to take part this year, I was following a number of people who participated last year and I really enjoyed their images but didn't join in myself - count me in for this one :)
May 15th, 2017
A ace
I quite possibly will join in, did it last year and really enjoyed it. This year might be more difficult but will try!
May 15th, 2017
Loved this challenge last year! Count me in!

I'm so excited for 30 Days Wild! It was a lot of fun last year and now I know a lot more places to catch fun wild photos. Count me in for sure!
May 15th, 2017
Ooh, this is right up my street (so to speak) count me in.
May 15th, 2017
I'm going to try, can't have enough of outdoors :-)
May 15th, 2017
This is really interesting. Might be challenging for me, but I am ready to try!
Count me in!
May 15th, 2017
Count me in for sure! I did it last year and thoroughly enjoyed it! :-)
May 15th, 2017
I'm in! I really enjoyed finding wildlife every day in June last year, although it might be more of challenge this year I'd love to give it a go again :-)
May 15th, 2017

Thank you all for responding (sorry I've taken so long to reply!) - It's great to see so many people interested / taking part :) I'll look forward to seeing your Wild June photos!

@roachling I can't remember how to get them up on Facebook with the 30 Days wild attached. Any idea?

@rosiekind

I think this is the link you need! Let me know if not and I'll try again!

I'm going to give this a shot. I may miss Monday, I'm having surgery, but I'll try.

Does wild mean WILD wild? Or is it uncultivated natural? Or both?
June 1st, 2017
@yrhenwr

It's whatever you can manage!

Doesn't have to be anything really wild, the point of it is just to get people outdoors, noticing nature and perhaps learning a little about it too. It can be something as simple as identifying a flower you don't know the name of or simply drinking a cup of tea in your garden instead of indoors.

If you can do WILD wild that's great but it'd down to the individual person and obviously people are going to do it differently according to how much nature they have access to! Hope that helps!

These three blogs post which were linked above have suggestions for some 'wild' activities to do for 30 Days Wild...

@bill_fe

That's great, it doesn't matter if you can't do every day :)
June 1st, 2017
Thanks Louise, very helpful. I'll do my best!
June 1st, 2017
@yrhenwr Great! It doesn't matter if you miss a day or two either, and you might find some inspiration from other 30 Days Wild photos here too!
June 3rd, 2017
Great topic and inspiration for the month of June
June 6th, 2017
Love the idea, will definitely give it a try
June 9th, 2017
Just found this... hope its not too late. I've been taking 'wild' photos everyday though.
June 9th, 2017
@stefneyhart no, not too late, 30 Days Wild runs for the whole month and whilst the idea is to do the whole month, you can join in any time and just post on days you can.

And you can always edit your existing 'wild' June photos to add the tag if you want to!
June 9th, 2017
@roachling Great, thanks so much. This sounds like fun.
June 10th, 2017
@roachling So I went to the web site and requested to join, and got okayed today. I went back yesterday and added the tag to my photographs in June... do they automatically go to that site or do I need to upload them there? Thank you for your help.
June 10th, 2017
@stefneyhart The tag 30DaysWild2017 is just a tag I started for the 365 site... photos don't go on the 30 Days Wild site - if you use any other social media platforms, just tag your photos #30dayswild and they will show up amongst all the other ones.
June 10th, 2017
@roachling Thanks Louise, I'm starting to understand. Social media is escaping me since my children are all grown up, lol.

Hello all, not sure if you are all still active here but I know some of you are and I've just started a new thread to launch 30 Days Wild again this year, should any of you be interested again? Apologies for the short notice this year!

Here's the new thread...
https://365project.org/discuss/general/31601/30-days-wild-2018

I hope one or two of you will join me :)
May 28th, 2018
@roachling this post is mainly for 2017. Should we be tagging this year's posts as 30dayswild2018
May 28th, 2018
@roachling I just noticed the 'new thread'
