About us

If you haven't heard of Nurture Lakeland before then here's what we do in a nutshell:

We're a unique, award winning organisation inspiring people to care for Cumbria's natural environment through responsible tourism.

We help to make the Cumbrian tourism industry sustainable by creating ways for businesses and individuals to donate to conservation.

We're also busy campaigning to help ensure that the environment and human activity co-exist harmoniously. We're doing lots to help the area through campaings like 'Love Your Lakes', 'Drive Less See More' and 'Low Carbon Tourism'. Take a look at the Sustainable Tourism section of the site to see what we're up to.
