Set up in 1996, Eden Rivers Trust is an environmental charity dedicated to improving and protecting the River Eden, its tributaries and lakes in the Eden Valley, Cumbria making it a better place for people and wildlife.
Eden is a unique network of rivers that is essential to the life blood of the area supporting internationally important habitats and their wildlife.
Proud to be part of the Rivers Trust movement, we are one of 60 local river trusts across the UK and Ireland.
We work with a wide range of partners including government agencies and other organisations, individuals and local community groups with the aim of delivering a sustainable and integrated approach to managing Eden’s rivers and the surrounding land. Working in partnership is essential to enable us to deliver innovative and creative environmental projects in our rivers, their catchments and local communities.
Working together we …
Connect people with rivers – increasing understanding of how rivers work, encouraging people’s enjoyment of the amazing wildlife and special places and inspiring them to take action and help care for our rivers.
Improve the natural processes within the Eden catchment, on land as well as in the river, nurturing wildlife habitats, reducing flood risk and providing cleaner water.
Protect the Eden’s unique and iconic biodiversity, ensuring our native plants and animals survive and thrive.
… this brings us one step closer to achieving our vision – ‘A Healthy Eden for All’.
