Wild Ways Well Open Group
The Wild Ways Well Open group is available for anyone who would like to spend some time amongst nature to help improve their mental well being.
Contact with nature and time spent in green spaces is proven to benefit everyone’s mental wellbeing. We use the internationally recognised Five Ways Well framework and combine it with fun and informative nature themed sessions in the parks and wildlife reserves of Cumbernauld.
On each session we will walk to a wildlife reserve and spend time exploring the woods. We’ll stop for a cup of tea made over a fire and have a chat about nature or what’s going on in our lives. And we’ll take on a nature based activity – learning about wildlife, doing some practical conservation work, making natural art, having ago at some photography, contributing to citizen science projects or trying out some forest skills. We’ll discover new things about nature and about ourselves, make new friends, and learn new skills. Along the way participants can also earn a John Muir Discover award.
All sessions are free of charge and run by an experienced guide. All equipment is provided and you don’t need any specialist skills or knowledge to take part – just bring yourself and dress for the Scottish weather!
Sessions start from outside the Muirfield Centre at 12.30pm and run for around 3 hours. (please note we are not affiliated with the Muirfield Centre we just meet outside the building).
