What you can do
Whether you live in the National Park or are just visiting there are lots of things you can do to help care for the National Park.
Here are a few ideas:
If you want to be actively involved...
We have a range of indoor and outdoor opportunities for people willing to give some time to the National Park.
Although nice to look at the Himalayan Balsam poses a threat to some of our most fragile ecosystems. You can help us to keep it under control.
If you are out and about in the National Park, it would help us if you would provide records of the flora and fauna that you see. It is possible to make useful records with no specialist knowledge.
Nothing's perfect and things change from day to day. Please tell us if you find a problem on our rights of way, that way we can put it right!
We run a variety of events and activities so take a look at what we have to offer and see if there is something for you. We will post our 2013 events in the New Year.
We'll tell you what new opportunities there are to be involved in the work of the National Park on our What's New page so do visit us regularly. We sometimes ask for your opinion on our plans for the future and what we are doing. That way you can help shape the future of the National Park. Or why not follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
