The Wild Challenge June 2017

May 2017

The Wild Challenge

With the school holidays fast approaching, what better way to spend your time than with your grandchildren outside discovering nature. With this in mind, the RSPB and Aldi have launched Wild Challenge. There’s a vast range of activities to choose from with something for everyone that will take you from your own back garden to exploring towns, cities, woodlands and even the coast. If you enjoy spending time outside with your family and having your own wild adventure then this is the challenge for you.

The Wild Challenge is the RSPB online awards scheme which encourages families to go out and get closer to the natural world.

By completing fun activities ranging from minibeast safaris to making a bug hotel, exploring rockpools and planting for wildlife, you can log your achievements on to the RSPB Wild Challenge website and collect bronze, silver and gold awards.

The Wild Challenge is open to all; whether you live in a busy city, seaside haven or a sleepy village. There is something to do at all times of the year, no matter what the weather. Each activity comes with helpful ideas and resources to help you on your wild adventure.

The RSPB’s ambition is for the Wild Challenge to help more families across the country reap the benefits of spending time outside in nature. Research has shown that children who have a healthy connection to nature are more likely to benefit from higher achievement at school, better mental and physical health, and stronger social skills.

The opportunity to connect with nature should be a part of every child’s life and the RSPB’s Wild Challenge is here to help every family go on their own wild adventure.

The RSPB will be on hand with hints, tips and rewards throughout your challenge. To take your first steps to your bronze, silver or gold Wild Challenge award visit rspb.org.uk/wildchallenge
