Pitch in for Whernside
Pitch in for Whernside has been launched by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority as part of the British Mountaineering Council’s national Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million fundraising campaign. Our aim is to raise £46,000 to rebuild part of the Bruntscar path, the main descent off the summit of Whernside - and we are asking for your support.
Help the Three Peaks
Maintaining the paths in the Three Peaks area costs on average £28 per metre. We rely on donations to make sure this vital work can continue.
If you have enjoyed walking in the Three Peaks and want to ensure future generations can too, then perhaps you could give us a little help. All donations will go directly to looking after the path network in the Three Peaks area.
Save the Red Squirrels
Red squirrel numbers declined dramatically following the introduction of the grey squirrel from the United States in the nineteenth century. The red squirrel continues to be on the UK list of priority species for biodiversity action.
There are only about 15,000 red squirrels in England. Snaizeholme in Widdale is now one of 17 refuges that are on the ‘front line’ between the reds and greys. Our red squirrel conservation programme, here, includes monitoring squirrel numbers, providing habitat and working to prevent the ingress of the non-native grey squirrels.
If you would like to show your support for the plight of the red squirrels please consider a small donation. We guarantee that 100% of the money you donate will go towards red squirrel conservation within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
