Conservation week | 23 - 27 October

Restoring Hardknott Forest, Duddon Valley

Spend five days (Monday 23rd - Friday 27th October) restoring one of England's largest areas of semi-natural woodland, planting native trees and removing non-natives whilst also getting the chance to observe and monitor local wildlife (the week will include a half day off to enjoy local walks and wildlife). Plus there will be opportunities to discuss and learn about landscape-scale ecosystem restoration.

There is a local pub (Newfield Inn) just a short walk through the woods and we have the exclusive use of Wallabarrow Camping Barn for the whole week (evening of Sunday 22nd to morning of Friday 27th October).

Costs will be £70 which includes food and accommodation. Further details will be provided on booking. NB There is no easily accessible public transport and you will need your own transport, but we will encourage car sharing where possible.

For bookings and enquiries please get in touch with Dominick Spracklen
