Nature Heals Project: Applications Open for 16-25 Year Olds

Birds of Poole Harbour are pleased to be launching their Nature Heals Project in June, running workshops aimed at 16-25 year olds, helping them to form a good relationship between nature and their mental health.

We have 30 places available on our workshop series, which consists of 3 different workshops on weekends in June and July. Each of our sessions has a unique focus, with a range of exciting activities from bird ringing to boat trip around Poole Harbour, designed to help better understand nature and how it impacts our mental and physical health. We’re therefore looking for applicants who would find our workshops beneficial to their mental health, and people who haven’t had the opportunity to experience nature on their doorstep before. The workshops are based either in Wareham at Careys Secret Garden or from Poole Quay. You can find out more about the workshops through our information poster . The dates are as follows:
  • Workshop 1: Saturday 4th June, 9am-1pm, based at Careys Secret Garden
  • Workshop 2: Saturday 18th June, 9am-1pm, based at Careys Secret Garden
  • Workshop 3: Sunday 3rd July, 9am-11:30am, harbour boat trip from Poole Quay

Attendance to the workshops is completely free of charge, with lunch provided on session 1 and 2, as well as free coach travel from Poole Quay to the site of our workshops at Careys Secret Garden in Wareham if it is required. All we ask is for you to complete a short application form to let us know a bit more about you, and ensure that you can get the most from the workshops. The deadline for applying is by midnight on Sunday 29th May. You can complete the application form here:

IMPORTANT: Please note, because of the limited number of spaces, applying doesn’t guarantee a space on the course. 

We’ll be in touch via email by the end of Monday 30th May to let you know whether you have received a place on our workshops and to send through further information. If you have any difficulties completing the form or have any questions, we’re happy to chat with you over the phone on weekdays from 9am-5pm and can be reached on 01202 641003 or through email on
