May is usually Walk In The Woods month at The Tree Council, and while many of us are getting out and about for our daily exercise, not all our usual haunts are open/accessible. For others, our health means we must isolate indoors. And yet, just one tree can be a source of inspiration and reflection.
This year, we may not be able to visit some of the green spaces we usually enjoy. But time spent in nature has never been more important to our mental and physical wellbeing. And nature can be found everywhere – a street tree in new leaf; a flowering window box; your local park. So this Walk In The Woods is going to be Walk Where You May month instead!
How to take part in Walk Where You May
- Visit and appreciate one tree on your daily exercise. It could be the street tree outside your house, a little hedgerow filled with chirping birds, or the trees in your local woodland or park.
- Share it in a tweet, photo or video using #WalkWhereYouMay to inspire others, especially those who may not be able to get out and about as they usually would.
- Tag three followers to encourage them to take part, too
- ALWAYS observe the latest government social distancing guidelines
- Not all green spaces are open at present. Check before you go, and do not travel by transport to visit green spaces
- Go by foot to visit your local park, green, garden
- Observe all social distancing guidelines
- This campaign will be subject to change based on government health guidelines
