Peak District Appeal Woods for the Future

The Peak District woodlands are special, providing a haven for wildlife and a space for visitors to reconnect to nature. Our rangers and volunteers are working hard to care for over 1000 hectares of threatened and special woodland, and there is so much more work to be done. Together, we can create the Peak District's woods for the future. We're hoping to reach our target of £50,000 - can you help us?
