2.6 Alphabet Challenge

Take our 2.6 Alphabet Challenge and support the Sussex Wildlife Trust    

As part of The 2.6 Challenge Sussex Wildlife Trust wants you and your family to get outside, get active and connect with nature.  Our nature themed scavenger hunt is based on the 26 letters of the alphabet - all you have to do is find an animal or plant for each letter A – Z.    

 Use our A-Z spotter sheet showing animals, plants, insects, amphibians and mammals – all are  common species found in Sussex - or come up with a list of your own ‘special spots’ .  

Our 2.6 Alphabet Challenge can take place in your garden or while out cycling or walking.  Whether you go on a 2.6k walk, a 26 mile cycle ride, or play I-Spy in your garden, try to find something starting with each letter of the alphabet.   

The 2.6 Challenge, will launch this weekend on Sunday 26 April 2020.  You will have a week to complete your challenge and raise as much sponsorship as you can for Sussex Wildlife Trust.  Our 2.6 Alphabet Challenge is open to anyone of any age – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing and remember to stay local.  

If you would prefer to set your own 2.6 challenge, please do. We’d love to see what imaginative ideas you come up with.
