About Family Fun in the Dales

Come and spend a few days helping care for the beautiful Upper Wharfedale landscape.

Come and help us care for Upper Wharfedale. You may be having a bonfire, protecting footpaths, caring for trees or making tree guards. All this surrounded by hay meadows, dry stone walls and high fells.
