About Leader's landscape training:
Landscape is our support system without which we could not exist.
Everyone depends on landscape for food, water, fuel and clean air.
A beautiful and diverse landscape with a wealth of wildlife and human history inspires and enriches our lives and provides a ‘natural health service’ for mind and body. But our fragile landscapes are under threat as never before, not least from climate change, and our challenge is to understand, support and enhance them.
Leader’s Landscape Training is aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen your understanding of Cumbria’s landscapes and enable you to pass on your new-found knowledge to those with whom you work.
A large number of different habitats exist in the Lake District, from high mountain to deep lakes. This means that the variety of wildlife found among them is also wide. This session walks two transects through differing habitats typical of the Lake District and looks at the birds found within them.
The session also helps with simple bird identification, habitat guides and birdwatching techniques which can be incorporated into walks or guided activities within the Lake District. Participants should learn more about the birds and habitats that they are likely to encounter in the National Park.
