Our Leaders' Landscape Training Sessions are aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen their understanding of Cumbria’s landscapes and enable them to pass on their new-found knowledge to those with whom they work. 

You don't have to be a Mountain leader to book a place on this activity but priority will be given to Mountain leaders if the event is oversubscribed.

Our session will teach you about a new style of progressive land management around Thirlmere.

This is the focus and aim of the John Muir Trust who are one of the partners alongside Natural England, United Utilities and Cumbria Wildlife Trust. 
Cultural, recreational, environmental issues along with education opportunities will be discussed on a walk from Steel End Car Park up to Ullscarf and descending past Harrop Tarn.
