Welcome to all who love the North York Moors!
From moorland wilderness to stunning green valleys and dramatic coastline, the North York Moors National Park is a source of inspiration and recreation for millions of people.
The North Yorkshire Moors Association (NYMA) works to conserve and enhance the landscapes, biodiversity and cultural heritage of the Moors and surrounding areas. As an independent charity, we campaign for this unique place to be safeguarded.
With England's largest expanse of heather moorland, its glorious 'purple acres' are special to everyone who lives in or visits the Moors. Our programme of campaigns, walks, events and volunteering gives everyone a chance to get involved.
