If the Covid pandemic taught us anything, it is that our rivers are essential to our health and well-being.
They were a reassuring presence when our daily lives were anything but normal. When we couldn’t be with our friends and families we could still get out to the river, be soothed by the flow of water and take pleasure in watching familiar wildlife along its length.
Yet the UK’s rivers are under greater pressure than ever—and the Eden and its tributaries are no different.
For over 25 years, Eden Rivers Trust has created and protected havens for wildlife, ensured that our precious fresh water is clean and safe for everyone and spread the word about healthy rivers far and wide to thousands of our fellow Cumbrians.
However, our rivers are still under threat – from climate change and most importantly … US.
It’s time to give back to Eden’s rivers.
