Month 9 – NATURE

IMG_6660 IMG_6639I’m taking David Suzuki’s 30 x 30 NATURE CHALLENGE (30 min. of nature for 30 days). It starts May 1 – join me!

Here are some great suggestions:

  • On your next walk, stop to smell some flowers.
  • That book you’re reading (or avoiding)? Take it to your favourite shady spot and dive in.
  • Choose a new trail, park or path and explore it on foot or bike.
  • Tap into your inner ornithologist and identify three birds. Take along a guidebook or app for help.
  • Go on a nighttime nature walk. Look and listen for the creatures of the night.
  • Get to know your inner artist. Take a pencil and paper to your local park, and try your hand at sketching.
  • Get your hands dirty in the garden. Not only is it great exercise, it lifts your mood.
  • Tap into your inner botanist and identify three trees. Need help? Try Leaf Snap
  • Take your camera or phone to a park or greenspace. Find some cool patterns or details to snap.
  • Nature is an acoustical paradise! Take some time today to just sit back and listen to the wind in the trees.
  • Take a notepad and pen to your local park. Sit down write whatever comes to mind. (You won’t ever have to show anyone!)
