For Friends of the Lake District, connecting people with our amazing landscapes has always been at the heart of what we do. We run training courses aimed at helping people understand their impact on our fragile landscapes, and how to manage this. Since 2011 we have helped people get involved in practical conservation action through our large scale Fell Care volunteer events, and regular conservation days throughout the year.

In 2014 our volunteers gave 2,000 days’ work, helping to learn about and care for our unique and extraordinary landscapes.
