Whether it’s fixing the fells, working with tenant farmers, re-building dry stone walls and bridges, managing woodlands and tarns, hydro power generation, or delivering training on working holidays, the National Trust rangers never have a dull day.
Working long days with a lot of physical work to conserve and sustain nature, doesn’t stop their enthusiasm and they still have energy to support local communities and tourists.
The National Trust West Lakes rangers held a two day event at the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway station in Dalegarth. The sun was still shining as they gave young families an opportunity to climb trees, make willow hurdles and mini dry stone walls and get to know more about leaves and animal footprints.
Although every day in the Lake District isn’t sunny, it is consistently beautiful. No two days are the same for rangers, and working for a conservation charity, the variation only adds to their love of the Lake District.
