Life's busy! We often don't make time for the things that bring us the most joy in life, like spending time connecting with Nature.
Make getting offline and going outside a priority again.
We give you permission (if you haven't already given it to yourself) to explore more, learn about the natural world, have fun, meet new people, have more real-life experiences, connect with wildness, and be healthier (physically and mentally)!
Come on an adventure with us!
It's a monthly challenge that you can do alone, with friends and family or with our online community of wild ones. It's a fun way to get motivated to go outside and connect with the natural world.
Each month you'll receive a new "map" to experience.
Think scavenger hunt + rewilding + naturalist learning + photography + The Wander Society + geocaching...

"I've always loved being in the outdoors, with family and friends or on my own. I'm excited that my son has shown the same interests. I'm looking forward to discovering more from my experiences in nature, to share with him."
Go out into your local ecosystem, deepen your awareness, experience with all your senses, find natural items, and document it in your own way.
We are a small team of Nature nerds who love exploring the outdoors, having fun, building community, and gettin' wild.
Our mission for this project is to experience more adventure in our everyday lives.
We're with you on this wild path and we'd love to connect with you in The Wildness Quest!
We are so grateful to all the people who showed interest in The Wildness Quest before the launch. They made this project a reality! We couldn't have done this without you. <3
