30 days wild – a review


For the last 30 days we have committed to make room in our lives for nature in support of the Wildlife trusts “30 days wild” initiative.

We signed up back in May and received a welcome pack that gave us lots of ideas for “random acts of wildness” and a calendar to update.

It was a great catalyst to get me out of the study and the kids off their PlayStation and outside to enjoy the long summer evenings.

We are fortunate enough to live in the welsh valleys where we have a mix of densely populated ex-mining villages and beautiful countryside. This allowed for a diverse mix of urban and rural wildlife appreciation.

You will see from my posts that each act of wildness was accompanied with a scripture reading that allowed the family to focus on God’s provision for us.

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”Romans 1:20

I want to thank everyone at the Wildlife trust for all their hard (work especially the social media team for the retweets) and everyone who has followed the blog. We hope you have enjoyed it.
