This summer, thousands of wildlife lovers will to go back to basics and spend a night in nature’s home under the stars for the RSPB’s Big Wild Sleepout.
The event will take place over the weekend 7 – 9 August and the RSPB is encouraging people to sleep out in their own gardens or outdoor space to get close to nature and discover which creatures they share their home with.
Happy campers of all ages are encouraged to take part in this fun and memorable activity. From the adventurous who will be building and sleeping in dens and shelters, the traditionalists who will stick to tents and caravans, to those who will venture outdoors and just sleep under the stars – all are welcome to take part!
Sleepout events will be taking place at RSPB nature reserves across the country, as well as at partner sites for those that would prefer some organised but wild activities. Special night-time ventures will vary for each event, but a few of these include outdoor cooking, fireside fun with stories round the campfire and night time strolls. A full list, together with a range of activities for all taking part including den building, torchlight safaris and bug hunting is available on the RSPB website rspb.org.uk/sleepout
