www.floraofthefells.com project, is about connecting people of all ages and backgrounds with Cumbria’s amazing upland landscapes and environments.

Since 2011 the project has run several successful large scale volunteering events: our 'Fell Care Days', at Helvellyn, Ennerdale, Ullswater, Windermere, Borrowdale and Grange in which hundreds of volunteers have taken part.

Funded by Friends of the Lake District and Natural England, the project started in 2002, aiming to make the uplands more accessible, enjoyable and understandable to a wide range of people through the landscape and flora (plant life).

Since 2002 the project has evolved to include four major and one smaller events festivals. The festivals involve a huge range of activities to appeal to different audiences including family activities, farm visits, herbal, wildflower, archaeology and geology walks, poetry picnics, arts workshops, cycling, canoeing and cultural events, all focusing on the landscape, habitats, flora and fauna of Cumbria's upland landscapes.

In addition to events, Flora of the Fells has published a series of booklets and leaflets and developed an ongoing education programme with schools and young people. Download our free outdoor learning education pack here.

Sustainability and the impacts of climate change on the fragile upland habitats are underlying themes to the Flora of the Fells project and activities.
