Conserving Coniston & Crake

The aim of ‘Conserving Coniston & Crake’ is to improve water quality, habitat and biodiversity in the area, through conservation activities and community engagement.

It’s a Heritage Lottery Funded project which will help to protect, monitor and restore the freshwater environment of Coniston Water, the River Crake and the wider catchment area, through a programme of conservation, community engagement and education.
