Health and wellbeing in nature courses Walsall Arboretum

We have partnered with Making Connections Walsall to deliver two “introduction to health and well-being in nature” courses for older Walsall residents experiencing loneliness or isolation. 

These courses have been developed by the Wildlife Trust to inspire and enable people to connect with each other and the natural world where they live and to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of being active in the green spaces on their doorstep.

To be eligible to take part in one of these free courses, participants must be a local resident of Walsall and be aged 60+. If you are not already registered with Making Connections Walsall you will be required to register with their free service to take part.

The two courses we are offering will be based in Walsall Arboretum and Palfrey Park with regular visits to other local green spaces. Each course will take place over an 8 week period, running every Wednesday morning from 10am - 1pm, refreshments will be provided.
