Field Trips – Field Trip 1 – Wildlife, wood fuel and nature tourism in Arnside & Silverdale

Field trip 1On day two of the conference, the local AONB Partnerships and National Park Authorities organised a day which gave delegates an opportunity to see a wide range of initiatives and projects.

The photos in the following slideshow below are from Field Trip 1 – Wildlife, wood fuel and nature tourism in Arnside & Silverdale which gave delegates the opportunity to see the stunning limestone landscape of Arnside and Silverdale AONB, discover some amazing wildlife and meet some of our local heroes along the way. We’ll see the real difference that large-scale, externally funded projects such as the Nature Improvement Area (NIA) and HLF Hide and Seek are making to the management of the area for wildlife and recreation.
