In an update released 21st of April, 2020, it was confirmed that the Nature Day event will last from April 23 to May 4!
The Nature Day Event begins on April 23rd, but it cannot be played until after 9:00 AM., after the V1.2 update is released. If you have your Switch's time changed to a date other than the present, you will need to set it between April 23rd and May 4th to participate.
The last day to do special Nature Day Nook Miles+ activites is on May 4. However, Leif will still come to your island to as a visitor even after the event.
Focused on nature-inspired goals, special Nature Day Nook Miles+ activities will be available such as planting shrub starts and watering flowers! You can even get special items as rewards by doing them! Good for nature and good for Nook Miles!
Once talking to Tom Nook and finishing the first Nature Day activity, you can talk to him again to receive the Hedge recipe which allows you to build hedges.
Nook Miles+ is required to get the activities and rewards.
|DIY Item||Required Materials|
・Tree Branch (×5)
・Clump of Weeds (×10)
Leif makes a comeback in New Horizons, and this time, he is in charge of Nature Day!
Leif runs a garden shop where you can buy a variety of flower seeds and shrub starts! He will visit your island on the Plaza from time to time.
Also, since the V1.2 update, Leif will start coming to your island as a visitor.
|Flower Seeds||240 Bells (Single)
1,200 Bells (5 pieces)
You can buy flower seeds not available at Nook's Cranny, which he sells at the same price! He will be changing the sets for each of his visit so always talk to him!
|Shrub Start||280 Bells (Single)
1,400 Bells (5 pieces)
You can also buy shrub starts that you can plant around your island. Plant them around your island! The sets of shrub starts you can buy also changes each visit.
You can also sell weeds to Leif which he buys for 20 Bells, 2x more the selling price than at Nook's Cranny. Clean up your island, and get some Bells!
Starting on the V1.2 update, you can now plant bushes, which you can buy from Leif's Garden Shop!
Bushes, or shrubs, are planted like trees. You buy them as starts, and they turn into nursery shrubs once planting them, and take a few days to grow. They also do not need to be watered.

Bushes, depending on the type, bloom flowers on certain seasons. Also, unlike flowers, they cannot be walked over. They are more like trees, or fences.
Once planting your first shrub, you will unlock the new Nook Miles activity: Shrubbery Hubbubbery!
|Plant 1 shrub.||300||Verdant/Wonder|
|Plant 5 shrubs.||500||Unrestrained/Sentinel|
|Plant 20 shrubs.||1000||Surprising/Snake|
Since Nature Day is all about protecting the environment, it may be possible that we have to clean up the island, which means pulling up weeds and fishing up trash. Similar to exchanging eggs with Zipper on Bunny Day, we might exchange weeds and trash with Leif for DIY recipes.
In New Leaf, the previous Animal Crossing game, there was another event called Weeding Day which was also held by Leif. In this event, you pull up weeds and plant flowers to beautify your town. You will get exclusive floral items as reward.
It is possible that this might return during the Nature Day event, and we might get exclusive items as well!
You can get the Hedge recipe once accomplishing the first Nature Day Nook Miles+ activity.
This page will be updated as we progress.

You have to download the next update which contains the data for the Nature Day event.
Your Switch system needs to match the time and date in real life to participate. If you have time-travelled, you need to connect to the internet and sync with real time.
If your Nintendo Switch has not connected to the Internet since before April 23 at 9 AM, the Nature Day Event will not start, even if your in-game clock is on the correct date.
Although a notification for an Update will not occur, your Switch will still need to connect to the Internet to gain access to the event.
Nature Day is mirrored with Earth Day in real life. We celebrate this to raise awareness for our environment, as well as to participate in activities that help our environment.
We recommend following the official Twitter account of Animal Crossing for the latest updates.
