Nature to Nurture

Over this one-day course, the Lancashire Wildlife Trust will give you practical experiences that demonstrate the positive effects the outdoor environment can have on our health.

In line with the well-researched Five Ways to Wellbeing, you will:

Connect and Take Notice: by exploring a nature reserve to look at wildlife that can be found by using your five senses to take a closer look.

Be active: working as a team you will be asked to carry out a practical task (e.g. den building). This is a fun, physical task that builds up team spirit and provides a sense of achievement.

Learn a new skill: we will plant wildflower seeds that you can look after and plant outside in your own garden or inside on your windowsill. We’ll also help you to understand why wildflower meadows are important.

Give to others: learn ways to create gifts that you can give to others, using natural materials.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Understand the power of living in nature, not with it but in it
  • Consider different ways in which we can improve our wellbeing through nature
  • Experience first-hand the effect of doing something positive with nature
  • Have a better understanding of how nature can improve mood and sense of wellbeing
  • Understand how to reconnect yourself to nature using all five senses
  • Feel inspired and motivated to explore nature more for improved wellbeing.
