Due to the outbreak of coronavirus our usual activities engaging with people in their wonderful National Park have been suspended until further notice. Whilst we thank you for staying local, we want to also help provide some connection to your National Park and to the natural world on your doorstep or back garden!
#PeakDistrictConnect is here to help you reap the huge benefits of connecting to the natural world, whilst importantly staying home to protect the NHS and save lives.
We would love to hear from you too so we will be sharing some of your stories using the #PeakDistrictConnect to inspire the nation. Now is the time to open your eyes to the wonders of wildlife you can see at home!
