30x30 challenge from David Suzuki

I know I come and go on here but sometimes I have more to say than others :)

For the month of May David Suzuki is doing a 30x30challenge. Get outside for 30 mins for the 30 days of May. On his website you can sign up for the challenge and he has different ideas on the things you can do while out in nature at work, at home, and at play.

On top of the 30x30 Wyatt and I are going to add a way to clean up our community. Wyatt has been very big on helping keep the world clean and always wants to pick up garbage. So in the next 30 days we are going to try to fill 6 garbage bags with litter. We are trying to get the city to help us with the disposal of the garbage. Right now if I collect a bag of garbage I have to pay to dispose of it. I am confident that we will get some help with this from our city :)

I am trying to document our 30 day challenge and the different ways we experience nature for the month. Our goal (ok my goal is to get as many people as we can to get out for this challenge. I am letting Wyatt use our little camera to take pictures so most of the pictures from this challenge will be seen through a 4 yr olds eyes :)

The fresh air or some sun on your face can make all the difference in your day. Slow down and listen to the sounds around you, stop and take in the smell as you walk past a garden, notice the birds finding food or building nests, just enjoy the world around you for the next 30 days and it will make a difference!

Get out!! Start a garden, take a walk or sit on your porch. It is just 30 minutes of your day!

I would love to know what you are doing for your 30x30 challenge!

I have an injured knee :( So we have not done too much but this morning we went to The Heartland Forest for a nature walk and to learn about some frogs, turtles, fish, snakes and other animals. If you are local this place is so great and free!! We have been outside all day in the backyard so we are well over our 30 minutes today!

We went to the heartland forest today. This is the only picture I got with him alone.
