St Nicks – Primary school visits

St Nicks is the green heart of York

St Nicks is a centre for nature and green living, with an ambitious vision for York. The charity started as ‘Friends of St Nicholas Fields’ in the 1990s by transforming a former landfill site into a thriving Local Nature Reserve. We continue to manage it, with the help of many great volunteers, for the benefit of both wildlife and our visitors. The name of the site and the secular charity comes from the middle ages when the area was owned and managed by St Nicholas hospital and church.

They are based at St Nicks Environment Centre which combines many green features. From this base, they run projects, events and services which help to make York more sustainable.

We have an excellent working relationship with St Nicks where our Primary aged students visit and complete a range of activities as shown below:
