Looking for tansy beetles with Discover Nature

Ecotherapy is the name given to a wide range of programmes that aim to promote good mental and physical wellbeing through outdoor activity in a natural environment. At St Nicks, ecotherapy is offered through various group activities and is underpinned by one to one mentor support – you can read more on how it works here. We currently offer activities every day of the work week, which are listed below and are all fully funded. Should you like to make a donation to the charity, it is always appreciated.

Please note that as of July 2018 we are at full capacity and there is a waiting list for new participants. Please get in touch using contact details below for more information.
