To achieve our vision, we undertake:
Conservation & restoration – By restoring the aquatic environment to a natural state and creating new habitats, we work to enhance the value of the aquatic landscape, reinstate the self-regulating function of these systems, and provide innovative and natural solutions to man-made problems such as Integrated Constructed Wetlands (ICWs).
Education & engagement – An important area of our work is to educate and engage with people of all ages and backgrounds: it is key that we celebrate and promote our natural world if we are to foster good water stewards and inspire individual action.
Land management & farm advice – We work closely with farmers to develop flexible and targeted management interventions that benefit soil and water, as well as farm business resilience. For example, independent farm advisory visits are carried out to identify pollution sources. Bespoke mitigation measures e.g. sediment traps – funded by a grant scheme – are then installed to intercept the pathway and capture valuable topsoil.
