Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is a small charity doing big things in the Yorkshire Dales. It helps to look after some of the most spectacular and precious landscapes in England, and support the communities that live here.

  • The Trust works to conserve and restore native habitats and wildlife – like wildflower-rich meadows, wetlands and broadleaf woodlands.
  • Its projects safeguard and celebrate the special landscape and its unique heritage – from limestone caves to dry stone walls.
  • The Trust works in an enabling way, delivering grants programmes and supporting local people to achieve their own projects.
  • Its work with young people is helping to create a generation who care about the environment – with inspiring events, educational activities and a rural apprenticeship scheme.    

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust loves the Yorkshire Dales and wants others to love it too. So it works hard to make sure people from all backgrounds can discover, enjoy and understand this special area. In this way it hopes to inspire them to help look after it in future.
