"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autmn leaves." John Muir

Events 2015

Friends of the Lake District Fell Care Days bring together local communities, schools and volunteers from many different walks of life to understand and learn about the value and importance of our unique upland landscapes through taking part in practical action to protect them. And most importantly, there's always lots of cake to help fuel volunteers through their tasks!

Leader's Landscape Training Sessions are aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen understanding of the variety and importance of Cumbria's upland ecology and to have a clearer understanding of some of the issues and pressures of outdoor users on our landscape, wildlife and habitats.
