Somerset Nature Connections – free courses on the Mendip Hills

By 27 March 2023No Comments

Somerset Nature Connections is a partnership project between Somerset Wildlife Trust and the three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Somerset.

It aims to tackle some of the barriers that prevent people experiencing the health and wellbeing benefits of Somerset’s spectacular natural environment. It is helping people to access these natural spaces, with a focus on supporting adults experiencing social isolation and mental health challenges.

Somerset Nature Connections runs regular 6 week Nature and Wellbeing courses, which are free and take place on the Mendips, at A Patch Wilder, Shipham Road, BS25 1RQ. It’s possible for free transport to be arranged from Glastonbury for those who need it.

Participants are able to attend 3 consecutive courses (so up to 18 sessions), and would experience a range of activities such as nature based mindfulness, crafts, wildlife walks, and practical activities.
