    May 2020 Wild Kids Magazine

This month’s issue is 16 pages, in PDF format and free as always.  I have worked to include more information for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, which meant having to learn quite a lot about foraging in places like Australia this time of year (I’m jealous that you guys have wild foods with names like lilly pilly!).  I’ve also worked hard to include activities for families in all parts of the world for the monthly list of 10 ways to have fun with nature.
