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.

Workshop detail:

Spotting and identifying wildlife and plants is one of the many ways of enjoying, and greatly enhancing, a walk. And being able to pass on this knowledge to groups you take out is great way of adding value to a day out in the fells.

On this session we’ll take a look at the flora and fauna of the Limestone fringe of the Lake District, a habitat much richer in plants than most areas of Cumbria. If the weather permits we will look how climate change is affecting dragonflies.

Meeting point:

Sizergh Castle (GR: SD 498879)

What to bring:

A picnic lunch & clothing/footwear for all weathers. (Please note there is no indoor backup venue so the sessions will go ahead in poor weather unless unreasonable or unsafe to do so)

Workshop tutor:

This workshop is hosted and organised by Friends of the Lake District (Tutor: Ian Brodie – Open Spaces Society and National Trust volunteer at Sizergh).
