We are excited to be working with the West Cumbria Rivers Trust to bring you a chance to discover more about the local environment in a year-round series of events for the whole family - from pond and river dipping, to family walks, litter picks and discovery trails.
Our next events are listed below. These are FREE events, however, places are limited so you must book in advance to attend. Call 01946 824946 , email email@example.com or call into FAC during opening hours to book.
Events will go ahead, even if it's raining, so dress for the weather and wear sturdy boots or wellies.

Thursday 15 February: Waterside Litter Pick
10am to 12noon
Enjoy a refreshing walk through the local countryside and along the River Ehen on our Litter Pick! You'll be doing yourself good but also helping to keep our community and local environment clean, protecting wildlife and learning about how we can all keep our countryside tidy!
Friday 13 April: (Not Quite) Dawn Chorus
