Stay Wild At Home


Boynes Meadow - Andy Bartlett

🌱 Stay connected to nature 🐝

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, maintaining a connection with the natural world is more important than ever to ensure we're taking good care of our health and wellbeing.

We know that people who spend time in nature are happier and healthier, but it can be difficult to know how to do this safely in the current climate. 

It's really important to stay active and exercise in your local area where you can. This can be as simple as going for a wander around your own back garden or neighbourhood. Devoting just a bit of time every day spent in nature is proven to help relieve stress and improve mental wellbeing.

To help you stay active and wild, we have put together some activities and resources that we hope will help you.
