Issue 9 #wildinside
Hi <<First Name>>,

Welcome to Wild Inside, your weekly window to inspiration, activities, and a little bit of joy and wildness closer to home in these difficult times. 
Something to learn
Native or not?

Some invasive species have become part of our landscapes over the years, but how well can you spot them?

Have fun with these activities, puzzles and games from the Scottish Invasive Species Initiative to become an alien detective.
Something to watch
Transport yourself to the sandy shores and rugged landscape of the Outer Hebrides
Something to join

Something to read
Adventure beyond lockdown

As we look to a time beyond lockdown, where will our adventures take us and how will they change?

Alastair Humphreys - who has explored across the globe - writes that adventure begins at home. Read his piece for Flight Free UK here.
Something to listen to
Young champions for nature

Over the next week you can hear the audiobook on BBC Radio 4 with Dara talking about life as an autistic teenager and his connection with the natural world.
