More than 19 organisations including two schools and 80 volunteers are taking part in a fell care day in and around Ullswater.
They will undertake a number of activities to make the fells a better place for everyone. Dry stone walling, footpath repair work, lakeshore litter pick on foot and by canoe and clearing gorse and drains on a walks.
The school children will be planting bulbs, coppicing, stream dipping and make bat and bird boxes and creating a squirrel hide out of willow.
Sue Manson, Flora of the Fells Project officer said:
"The Fell Care Day promises to be a great day in celebration of the Lake District Fells, all the benefits they provide and the immense volunteer effort that goes into helping to conserve them.
"The Fell Care Days are a great chance to get fit and do something fulfilling in an amazing setting. We've got volunteers of all ages coming along and it's not too late to join in what promises to be a really good day."
Volunteers are needed to help keep the only air ambulance based in Cumbria flying. The Great North Air Ambulance Service, which operates the Pride of Cumbria aircraft from its base at Langwathby, near Penrith, is hoping to attract new volunteers to bolster its fundraising effort.
The Pride of Cumbria costs about £1.3m to run every year, and as it does not receive Government or National Lottery funding, it is entirely dependent on the generosity of the public.
GNAAS has a good team of volunteers in the county already, but says more are needed to safeguard the future of the Cumbrian helicopter, which last year flew on 444 missions. It wants to avoid the scenario of 2005, when the helicopter was grounded due to lack of funds.
Janet Hume, who coordinates volunteers at GNAAS, said: "We are immensely grateful for our existing volunteers who do an incredible job in spreading the word and helping out where needed.
"We would like to invite residents of the region to join our ranks, and to use whatever spare time they may have to make a difference to this charity which is dedicated to them. There are a range of different opportunities and we can offer all our volunteers a rewarding experience."
There will be an open day for volunteers on Saturday, June 16th at West Cumbria Trades Hall
Outdoor enthusiasts, who are passionate about looking after the Lake District, are needed to add to the current “army” of volunteers who supplement the outdoor work of the national park.
The Lake District National Park currently has more than 400 volunteers undertaking a range of tasks, it is currently recruiting for up to 12 new Countryside Volunteers and five specific lake volunteers for Bassenthwaite Nature Reserve.
The roles will include a range of tasks such as vegetation clearance, surveys, patrols, work parties and property checks. At Bassenthwaite volunteers will be working pro-actively with lake recreational users, checking permits, offering advice, answering questions and being a visible LDNPA presence.
Chris Tomlin, Park Management Leader North said:
"This is a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet other people and help look after this wonderful national park.
"The roles are open to anyone and will particularly suit individuals who enjoy being outside doing physical tasks and are prepared to be ambassadors for the National Park.
"No experience is necessary but a reasonable level of strength and fitness would be desirable for these very practical volunteering opportunities"
"You will initially work alongside our Park Management staff and other volunteers and will have access to a thorough induction and training programme including courses on first aid, dealing with the public, rights of way, plus any specialist practical training that is required. "
