Let's Learn Moor

Find out more about how and why we introduce thousands of schoolchildren the moors every year.

Let’s Learn Moor, the UK’s largest upland classroom, is an annual event which this year takes place from 1-5 July.

Let’s Learn Moor takes place in the North York Moors, Nidderdale, Calderdale, the Yorkshire Dales, the Peak District, North Pennines and the Forest of Bowland. It is co-ordinated by Countryside Learning and BASC, with events hosted by local Regional Moorland Groups, plus more than 50 partner organisations.

The project launched in 2017 and has continued to grow year-on-year, with more than 10,000 children from a wide range of schools having attended the events to date.

More than 2,000 children enjoyed the event in 2023, where pupils and teachers got to experience life on the moor, solve rural crimes with the police and learn about the importance moorland management. This year is set to be bigger than ever, with 2,700 children expected to take part in 2024.
