As a charity, we rely on the generosity of those who share our cause to continue our operations.

In a normal year, we organise events and activities of all kinds, with the emphasis on fun and discovery—walks to wild places, family events, tours on land and sea, and opportunities to get involved with local community celebrations of how special the Geopark is.
