Cumbria Woodlands is partnering with the Lake District Foundation and United Utilities until March 2023 to deliver important nature restoration activities, funded by the DEFRA Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The funding will enable the following:
- The delivery of vital restoration work on some of the most important Ancient Woodland sites in the Thirlmere Valley, and which include Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Plantations on Ancient Woodland sites.
- The creation of a new full-time post, supporting a graduate forester to hone and develop their skills which is vital to ensure a skills pipeline into the conversation sector.
- Advice on woodland creation and management to landowners and managers across Cumbria.
