What is WILD?
Spend More Time In The WILD was created by Abbie Barnes in 2016 with the aim of inspiring and empowering individuals to enjoy more quality time outside for the benefit of improving mental and physical health and wellbeing, whilst building meaningful connections with the natural world and each other. Over the years the project has grown into a worldwide network of passionate and courageous individuals working together to enjoy the beauty of our wild spaces and protect them for generations to come.
Alongside offering WILD Walks, workshops, talks and presentations throughout the country, perhaps the biggest part of the initiative is Abbie's YouTube Channel.
