From fixing a fence, wall, or footpath half-way up a mountain, to demonstrating countryside skills to you at events, leading volunteers on practical conservation projects or helping entertain the kids at Wray Castle in holiday-time, our countryside rangers' work here has an influence on many of you as visitors to the Lake District (although you may not always notice it).
Our activities are very varied (follow our blog and you soon find that out!) and we make a valuable contribution to maintaining the countryside and making it more (and safely) accessible and to helping you get more out of your time here.
We work in partnership with other organisations and rely on visitor income and donations to fund our work. You can support us by making an on-line donation to our Lakes Appeal.

Helping to change lives
The team from High Wray Basecamp, our volunteer centre, works with a variety of volunteer groups, sometimes on a regular basis. For some of the individuals involved in this volunteer experience it helps to change their lives, watch our video to learn more about one group, Littledale Hall.
Find out about one of the volunteer groups we work with from our Volunteer Centre at High Wray.
They help us carry out practical conservation projects in the surrounding landscape to benefit both visitors and wildlife.
