Outdoor instructors have pledged to donate part of their course fees to a conservation trust.
The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust will receive £5 from each navigation course run by Where2Walk.
The Long Preston-based experts offer courses in the Yorkshire Dales for beginners and intermediate walkers.
The £5 donations from the course fees will be used by the trust to support a wide range of projects that help to care for the landscape, economy and communities of the Dales.
Jonathan Smith of Where2Walk said: “I hope that the navigation courses will give more people the confidence to enjoy the Yorkshire Dales in a responsible way.
“We want to encourage people to explore the network of footpaths and discover some of the regions’ hidden gems, while at the same time contributing to the great work being done by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.
“It’s a partnership that really seems to make sense.”
David Sharrod, YDMT director added: “We are very grateful to Where2Walk for their generosity and support for our work.
“Through this partnership people can learn how to explore the landscape safely, enjoy the health and well-being benefits of being out in the countryside, and help to protect this special place so it can be enjoyed by future generations.”
Places cost £45 per person for one-day courses, and £130 per person for 2 day courses, including an overnight stay. Details are on the Where2Walk website.
