About

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:

Glenridding Common rising to the summit of Helvellyn is an iconic location for many in the British uplands.

It is visited by tens of thousands of people annually; it is part of two local farm enterprises and is one of a few strongholds in England of Arctic alpine flora and other important species.

The balance between recreation, farming and conservation can be a challenge, especially in hostile upland environments, but that is the focus and aim of the John Muir Trust who have a management lease on the land.

Cultural, recreational, environmental issues along with the huge opportunities for education will be discussed on a walk from Glenridding across the common to Red Tarn.
 

Meeting point:
