We want York to be the most eco-friendly city in the world, where nature and people thrive side by side. Over the last 20 years, our supporters have helped us carve out this green heart of York. Our home is a nature reserve built on a former landfill site which now bursts with wildlife. Our environmental projects promote sustainability and protect both York's wildlife and people's mental health. Working together, we can make sure everyone benefits from the natural spaces in our city.

By becoming a member, you will: 

  • join thousands of other people who believe in the power of nature to create a better world
  • protect York's wildlife and green spaces for future generations

We consulted our members to better understand what our offer should include and the messages were very clear – keep it simple and avoid gimmicks:

“the value of the organisation is what really matters.”
“I don’t need anything else in terms of an ‘offer’ in exchange for my membership.”
"I’m happy to know the team at St Nicks are getting on with looking after it. That’s what drew me to become a member.”
“One of the things I like is not getting glossy magazines in the post and emails filling my inbox, which I never read, like I do from other charities.”
