Over the past 80 years Friends of the Lake District has contributed towards more than 600 environmental projects throughout Cumbria, from school nature areas to major woodland creation projects, through our Environmental Improvement Grant scheme.
This year, we are running a new 'Discover Cumbria' events grant scheme together with Natural England. The scheme will enable organisations, schools or groups to run innovative events or activities this summer for people and communities to get outside, discover and enjoy something new about the natural environment.
Events must be free to attend and can run any time from April to December this year. A total fund of £10,000 of grant money will be available, with individual grants of up to £500 for one event, or £800 for more than one event.
• Applications can be made to Friends of the Lake District, and information on the new grant scheme can be found below.
