The Crandon Public Library is challenging you to “go wild” this month.
The idea behind “30 Days Wild” is to do something every day during the month of June that makes you feel happier, healthier, and more connected to nature.
Crandon Public Library Director Stephanie Schmidt says getting outside improves your physical and mental health.
"Go for a walk or go bird watching," Schmidt says. "Just do something different for 30 days. If you try, it'll be really fun. You'll learn about the natural environment and you'll probably learn things about yourself, too. It's a great way to listen, look around, and relax."
The Crandon Public Library will be hosting a nature fair to kick off the initiative. Families can learn about local trails and opportunities for oudtoor exploration and get hands-on experience with weird critters and carniverousplants.
Local experts from Trees for Tomorrow, the Wild Rivers Invasive Species Coalition, UW-Extension, Forest County Health Department, Raptor Education Group Inc., and others will be there.
The 30 Days Wild Nature Fair Kickoff event is Tuesday, June 5th from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the Crandon Public Library. The event is free and open to the public.
There will be two scheduled live bird presentations by the Raptor Education Group Inc. at 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., otherwise you can feel free to drop in anytime.
