The River Forth Fisheries Trust are delivering the RiverLife:Almond & Avon project from 2016-2020 to improve rivers for communities and wildlife.

Costing £6.7million, the project is funded by Scottish Government, Heritage Lottery Fund, SEPA Water Environment Fund and West Lothian & City of Edinburgh Councils.

Have a look around to find out what’s happening!

As part of this project we are keen to build up a picture of how people engage with their local river and what their perceptions are of it. To do this we have created a short, online survey which we hope you can spare a few minutes to complete.
