Noticing Nature Starter Pack
Prompts for nature connection this weekend
Before I launched this newsletter I shared a ‘Noticing Nature Starter Pack’ in issue 29 of The Happy Newspaper, perhaps that’s what brought you here?
Since I’m busy editing issue 31 of The Happy Newspaper at the moment (and I’ve completely run out of time to write this week’s email) I thought I’d re-share the article from issue 29 here, along with some additional links to help you notice and connect with nature.
If you need some good news in your life (I think we all do right now!), subscriptions are open until 25th August for the Learn issue of The Happy Newspaper.

Join in with #CouchTo10Mosses: I highly recommend following Lief Bersweden if you’re into wild plants. This year he brought back his #CouchTo10Mosses challenge, in which he introduced us to ten bryophytes and encouraged us to go out and look for them. Here’s a mossy good news story we’re popping in the next issue of The Happy News too!
