Trust launches new weekly Wild Inside eNewsletter
Inspiring nature activities and joyful wild stories to help connect nature and people during the coronavirus pandemic
The John Muir Trust has launched a new weekly eNewsletter called Wild Inside to share fun activities and inspiring stories that connects people to wildness and each other during the period of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Trust is encouraging people to follow government advice to stay at home and protect those in our communities who are most vulnerable: connecting with nature only when it’s safe to do so, online, from our windows, in our gardens or while getting our daily exercise local to where we live. To support this, the Trust will release a new issue of Wild Inside each Tuesday morning, suitable for anyone that would like a little bit of wildness in their inbox each week.
Regular features include: activities to support home schooling and learning; inspirational reads; listens and watches. Wild Inside will also share some of the amazing and creative ways people are using nature to help connect and support each other during the coronavirus pandemic.
Kevin Lelland, the Trust’s head of development and communications says: “If we all stay home today, we will see fewer new cases of Covid-19 tomorrow. That means keeping away from the wild places we love for now as we focus on keeping ourselves and others in our communities safe and healthy. We hope Wild Inside can bring a little bit of joy into people’s lives at a difficult time as we share magical stories and inspiring activities that draw attention to how we feel about the wild. Wild nature is relevant to everyone's health and well-being and we hope to provide something special each week that gives people a reason to reach out, share and connect with others.”
