As an organisation, English Lakes take our responsibility to the environment seriously. This is about striking the right balance between short-term economic interests and the long-term health of the local environment. Over the last sixteen years we have worked in close association with Nurture Lakeland to minimise the negative impacts of tourism, whilst maximising the positive effects of tourism on the local economic, social and environmental causes.
