  • Wild Challenge

    What is Wild Challenge?

     

    Wild Challenge is a call – to get up, get out and get wild!

    It’s a challenge for you to connect with the natural world in brave new ways – to reach out and touch it and meet it head-on, up-close and personal.

    You can go as quickly or slowly as you like as they have a wide range of activities to suit your needs and location. There’s something to do throughout the year, no matter what the weather brings.

    Click on the link below to find out more and see if you can complete some of the wild challenges like building a bird box or making a hedgehog cafe.
