What Is the Nature Day Event in Animal Crossing New Horizons?
Nature Day is a limited-time event in Animal Crossing New Horizons in which players will be able to perform additional challenges and get new awards. It also heralds the reappearance of Leif's Garden Shop, though it seems he's going to stick around even after Nature Day is over.
The main challenges for players are new Nook+ Miles activities, all of which are green-themed, incorporating plant life and nature in some essential way.
When is the Nature Day Event?
Nature Day officially starts on 23 April and extends for some time until 4 May, giving players nearly a whole fortnight to make the most of its new challenges, meet Leif in his preferred setting, and collect the new rewards. Speaking of which...
Nature Day Rewards
For completing the new Nook+ Miles challenges, players get five times as many Nook Miles as they normally would, meaning you can acquire new Miles extraordinarily quickly over the course of Nature Day. Not only that, but there's also a way to unlock hedges, which we've explained here.
How to Play and Unlock the Nature Day Event
Nature Day is playable to anyone who has New Horizons, though you'll need to have an online connection in order to download the most recent free update.
