Caring for our National Park

We and our partners are working towards making this place an inspirational example of sustainable development in action. We want its prosperous economy, world class visitor experiences and vibrant communities to come together in sustaining the spectacular landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage.

What you can do

We maintain more than 3,100km of paths and bridleways. Millions of visitors, combined with our Cumbrian climate, means we are constantly carrying out improvements and maintenance. 

You can either selecting a place, project or person you wish to sponsor or make a one-off gift. Donate in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a special occasion and you can add a simple engraved plaque to a finger post, gate, stile or bridge and choose whether to add a message to our memorial and celebration web page.

By making a donation today, you can help us look after this spectacular place now and in the future.
