There's lots going on in the AONB with a huge range of walks, talks and activities organised by a number of our partner organisations and local clubs and societies, all helping you discover more about the extraordinary landscape, amazing wildlife and rich heritage of the area.
Annual Conference – The Fight for Beauty
At a time of huge change and opportunity, we are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker is Dame Fiona Reynolds, Master of Emmanuel College Cambridge, former Director General of the National Trust and panel member of the Review of Designated Landscapes (Glover Review). Fiona will be talking about the Fight for Beauty, the history of protecting our landscapes and the importance of continuing to protect those things that have huge value, but which money can’t buy.
Jo Sayers from the University of Cumbria’s Back on our Map (BOOM) project will talk about species recovery; Glen Swainson of Natural England will speak about the Gait Barrows management plan; and Lucy Barron, AONB Manager, will look ahead to how we can respond to current challenges at a local level.
