The Lake District fells are enjoyed by millions of walkers every year but the high level paths can be surprisingly fragile and the sheer number of visitors leave a mark on the landscape. Over time grass is compacted by heavy foot traffic and dies. Heavy rainfall quickly washes away the exposed soil down the steep slopes into streams, rivers and eventually the lakes, where the increased amount of silt causes havoc for fish and other species.
During these unprecedented times, a small donation can make a big difference! We’ve launched a crowdfunding campagin to help raise urgent funds. Your donation will help towards the following items:
- £10 helps pay towards buying litter bags
- £25 helps pay towards valuable training for our volunteers on the ground
- £50 helps pay towards Lake Wardens to monitor algae in our Lakes
- £100 pays towards a day for a ranger to patrol and keep the fells safe and clean
- £200 could pay for a skilled contractor to carry out repair work
If you donate today, it’ll make a huge difference for tomorrow.
We’ve got lots of rewards to say thank you for making a donation, so get involved and help us hit the magic £5,000 mark!
