The only membership organisation dedicated to protecting and enhancing Lake District and Cumbrian landscapes
Welcome to Great Landscapes Week 2018. We'll be running events every day between Saturday 4th August and Friday 10th August celebrating every aspect of our glorious landscapes. A range of free activities will offer you the chance to connect with and learn about landscape, geology, wildlife, water and heritage. If you've got images you'd like to send us that illustrate these elements of the the Lake District and Cumbria then Tweet or Instagram using #greatlandscapesweek to add them to our picture wall
Saturday 4th August to Friday 10th August
Great Landscapes offer endless opportunities for physical, spiritual and mental well-being. They have been the inspiration for artists, poets and adventurers down the centuries. They also offer up to us the fundamental stuff of life: water, oxygen, fuel, soil to grow food and a place to live for humans, wildlife and nature.
But they are also under threat and, in our busy lives, we can take for granted the true beauty and importance of what is above, below and all around us.
So, from Saturday 4th to Friday 10th August 2018 we’re inviting you to step into our great Cumbrian landscapes and find different ways to experience what’s so special.
And this year we’re kicking off the week with our LATRIGG RALLY asking “What are National Parks for?” Join us to be part of the conversation.
All events are FREE but Booking is essential
