Note that in order for this new event to activate, you’ll need to have updated your copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons to the latest Version 1.2 April Update.

Once you’re all updated to Version 1.2.0 and your Nintendo Switch system clock is set between April 23rd – May 4th, you can begin enjoying the new Nature Day Event when you load up your copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons!

When the event begins, you should receive a letter from Tom Nook in your mailbox introducing the Nature Day event and the new nature-themed special Nook Miles+ activities for Nature Day. Head over to Resident Services and speak to Tom Nook there for more details on the event!

Having Trouble Finding Flower Seeds Or Bulbs?

Always check the cabinet at Nook’s Cranny shop first when looking for a specific type of flower seeds or bulbs. If you can’t find what you’re looking for from the Nooklings, it’s likely that Leif will sell them at his Flower Shop when he visits your island.

Still having trouble finding the flower seeds or bulbs you need? You may need to try visiting a friend’s island and checking their Nook’s Cranny cabinet as its likely a different selection of flowers will be available for sale there. If they have Leif, you should check with him too.

Nature Day Rewards

A special reward is available from Tom Nook for completing your first special Nature Day task in Nook Miles+ and it’s absolutely perfect for decorating your island alongside the brand new bushes from Leif’s Flower Shop!

For more information on this exciting new Nature Day item, how to unlock it, and how to craft it, check out our full How To Unlock & Craft The New Hedge Fence (Nature Day) guide here.

Currently, this is the only reward we’re aware of for the Nature Day Event. Given that the event is slated to last for almost two full weeks until May 4th and the first reward is easily obtainable in one day, we suspect there could be additional rewards. This isn’t confirmed yet though.
