Friends of the Lake District has 5,200 trees to get planted on their land at High Borrowdale (off the A6 between Kendal and Shap) by the spring and they need your help!
The landscape charity is calling for people to join them to help create a volunteer force to get this new woodland planted at a Fell Care Force Tree Planting Day on Wednesday 8th February.
If you’ve been on one of Friends of the Lake District’s Fell Care Days before you’ll know the fun, camaraderie and huge sense of achievement that comes from spending a day in the outdoors helping look after our spectacular Cumbrian landscapes. And, of course, there’s always the cake to help fuel volunteers through the day!
Ruth Kirk, Fell Care Project Officer said: “High Borrowdale was described by Alfred Wainwright as ‘the most beautiful valley outside the Lake District’, although since the 1st August last year, thanks to many years of hard work by Friends of the Lake District, it is now within the new extension of the Lake District National Park.
“We know from a recent survey of our members how important woodlands are to people, and this is a great to chance to play a small part in creating a new piece of woodland for the future. You don’t have to member to volunteer, everyone is welcome to come along and help.”
Parking near the site is limited so a car-share arrangement will be operated. To book on to the day visit: https://www.friendsofthelakedistrict.org.uk/Event/fell-care-force or contact [email protected] for more information.
