We're asking people to build on their New Year’s resolutions to get fitter and enjoy the outdoors, meet new friends and help the environment by joining us in our new programme of conservation workparties running throughout 2022. 

Jan Darrall, Land Manager said: 

“What better way to start a new year than by joining us in the fresh air to help the environment on one of our work parties. 

“There is something for everyone as we have land stretching from Threlkeld in the north to Kendal in the south, and from Broughton in Furness in the west, to Little Asby near Orton in the east. 

“Tasks range from helping in our woodlands through to learning how to build dry stone walls, or help plant meadow plants to help our pollinators. It’s a great way to meet new friends and our famous array of workparty cakes will be on offer.” 

We've scheduled 44 events in 2022 with a range of activities including tree planting, dry stone walling, gorse control, woodland work, hedge planting and tree maintenance. 

There will be a date and an activity to suit everybody who fancies giving something back and joining like-minded people in caring for the natural environment or restoring cultural heritage features.
