About the event

We rely on rivers for so much, but currently only 14% of England’s rivers are in good health. As a result of the way that we have managed our rivers, lakes and wetlands 13% of freshwater and wetland species are now threatened with extinction from Britain.

The National Trust and partners are setting out to reverse this trend through the 'Riverlands' project. Working with the Environment Agency, they be reviving twelve of the UK’s most precious catchments, including the Porlock Vale streams which is part of a first phase of work at six catchments.

The aim is to create rivers and catchments that are clean, healthy and rich in wildlife. They want the project to inspire people to connect with rivers, nature and wildlife, increasing the relevance of rivers and other freshwaters in their lives. The talk will be given by Ben Eardley (National Trust).
