The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, which runs the North Cave Wetlands Nature Reserve, is encouraging people in the Pocklington area to sign up for the 30 Days Wild challenge.

The scheme endeavours to connect people with natural beauty throughout June.

The trust’s annual nature challenge, entitled 30 Days Wild, encourages people to do something wild every day for the month of June. This year’s theme is all about helping wildlife in your neighbourhood.

The 30 Days Wild pack has ideas for sharing the challenge locally, including great ways to green-up your area.

People who sign-up to 30 Days Wild scheme will get a free pack with a booklet of inspirational ideas for Random Acts of Wildness, a recipe for wild strawberry and thyme ice cream, wildflower seeded paper to sow, a wall chart to record your activities and wild stickers.

There are special packs for schools with outdoor lesson plans and giant Random Acts of Wildness cards.

Jono Leadley, at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, said: “30 Days Wild is a great way to get closer to nature and marvel at the everyday wildlife that lives all around you.

“Observe the birds in your garden, or get together with your neighbours to sow front-garden meadows along the length of your street. No matter how small the action, it all counts towards doing something wild every day!”
