Restoring Hardknott Forest

Since 2003, over 700 volunteers have helped restore Hardknott Forest in the upper reaches of the Duddon valley - one of the Lake District's largest conifer plantations - to native woodland. They now need extra help...

  • Take part in a regular Restoring Hardknott Forest work party: turn up on the second Sunday and fourth Tuesday of each month (except July and August).
  • Sign up for a Restoring Hardknott Forest residential weekend: 27-28 April 2019 (NB now fully booked) and 4-6 October 2019. We stay in a camping barn in the Duddon Valley - contact Restoring Hardknott Forest Project Officer John Hodgson for more info or to book a place.

To find out more about the project, download the Restoring Hardknott Forest leaflet, visit their Facebook page or email the Hardknott Forest Project Officer John Hodgson
