Catch a crab and tick off no.39 on our list of 50 things (then let him go)

Nature misses you

This summer we'd like to help you and your children explore the great outdoors and get really close to nature. We're hoping to get 200,000 children playing outside and having a wild time.

So if you know someone who just loves getting face to face with scary beasts or finding crazy creatures from the deep, head to a beach near you and you can tick off no.30 and no.37 on our list of 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾.

Summer events

Join us at one of our events this summer. We've an exhibition by Quentin Blake at Mottisfont, 50 things events up and down the country, outdoor theatre and a new series of First World War poetry walks.

Get outside and active this summer

If you feel like getting active in the outdoors this summer then we’ve got lots of ideas. Explore somewhere by paddle power at one of our top canoeing spots. If you feel like making a weekend of it then check out some of our places to stay by the water.

What's growing

July is a time of plenty in kitchen gardens and farms up and down the country. Come and have a look at what we're up to this season. Maybe we can inspire you to get busy in your own garden or pick up some local produce from the farm shop or farmers' market and get creative in the kitchen.
