Friends of Nidderdale AONB

The Friends of Nidderdale AONB is a Yorkshire based volunteer run charity, set up in 2005, which is passionate about supporting local conservation projects. We think Nidderdale AONB is a truly special place, and we aim to help conserve this beautiful area of the Yorkshire Dales for future generations. We’d love you to get involved!

How do we work?

We are run by a small group of voluntary trustees from the local area and are supported by staff at the Nidderdale AONB office. We receive money from people who donate, through our membership scheme and grants.

Funding for your local project

All the funds that we raise go straight into the Nidderdale Countryside Fund to support local wildlife and heritage projects. If you have a great idea for a conservation project in Nidderdale AONB that requires funding we might be able to help!

Come and join us!
