The remote valley of Ennerdale on the western fringe of the Lake District National Park offers a spectacular landscape of mountain ridges, extensive woodland, dynamic natural rivers, a glacial lake and highly valued flora and fauna. For over a decade, a nature-first restoration approach by a partnership of landowners has been encouraging the evolution of a wilder landscape for the benefit of people.
The balance of wilding, access and engagement is a sensitive one. The day will focus on practical management, philosophical approaches and views from you as outdoor practitioners.
