Windermere Fell Care Day - Thursday
Put something back at this week's volunteer fell care event at Windermere in the Lake District.
Posted: 22 October 2012
A quick heads-up on the 2012 Windermere Fell Care Day which takes place this Thursday 25 October and is a cracking event that gives you the chance to put something back into the outdoors by helping to protect the Lake District landscape.
Organised by Friends of the Lake District, the Wiindermere Day follows on from last month's successful Ullswater event, which attacted more than 200 volunteer participants, and includes a wide range of projects including footpath creation at Wray Castle, drain clearance, path restoration work at Wansfell, Loughrigg, Troutbeck and Miller Ground, Bowness, hazel tree planting and pond digging at Sweden Wood, Ambleside, rebuilding a dry stone wall by the lakeshore at Wray Castle, undertaking a wax cap fungi survey at Mislet, and wheelchair access works at White Moss Common.
In addition, qualified divers are needed to help with a diving litter pick of the lake bed of Windermere, with Kendal Sub Aqua club and Paul Rose, the broadcaster, diver and explorer.
Anyone can take part, and there are lots more other opportunities to get stuck in as well the ones mentioned above. For full details see the Friends of the Lake District web site at:
