** Pembrokeshire and Yorkshire Dales projects win big at 2019 Park Protector Award
After an incredibly strong competition, this month saw us crown the SWEPT project winner of the 2019 Park Protector Award at a special reception in Parliament.

SWEPT is taking on the huge challenge of agricultural pollution in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park by using volunteers to measure pollutants in the water of the National Park.

SWEPT take home the 2019 Park Protector Award

This year marked the first time Campaign for National Parks has worked with Defra to deliver a second prize. People and the Dales, a project introducing underrepresented groups to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, took home the Year of Green Action Award.

Have you visited Northumberland National Park? We’ve teamed up with Northumberland National Park Authority to put on a special exhibit exploring the history of the National Parks movement at The Sill: National Park Discovery Centre.

Marking the 70^th anniversary of the National Parks, visitors can enjoy 3D holograms, a virtual reality experience and a special film by Campaign for National Parks, featuring interviews from our oral history project.
