Starting Monday 9th November until Friday 11th December, up to 100 students will be taking part in a brand new HISA Nature Explorer Project.
The aim of the project is to encourage students to get outdoors, explore and show us what their local habitat looks like. Whilst doing so, we hope it will increase students' physical activity, offer an opportunity to connect with nature and get some awesome footage showcasing just how beautiful the Highlands and Islands really are!
Signed up students received a free explorer's pack full of useful goodies like books, torches, magnifying glasses and more to really get to know their local area!
Registration for the project is now closed but if you still want to get involved, please check out our Competitions page which is open to all students with awesome prizes on offer!!
For the project we're doing a pre- and post project survey, so we would be incredibly grateful if you did both!
This is the link to the survey AFTER to the project
Think Health Think Nature is a fantastic initiative that made this project possible and their website is full of great free resources on how to connect with nature in your local area. Check out their website here! They can also be found on social media via their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels.
This Green Health Event/activity is part of a programme being delivered by the Highland Green Health Partnership which is aiming to encourage more of us to make use of our local green and blue spaces as part of Our Natural Health Service.
This project was made possible with funding from the EU Leader Rural Development Fund and NatureScot.
