Upper Avon Improvement Project

Description

Our rivers have been changed by agricultural use (including drainage schemes and dredging) which has led to degradation of the in-stream and riparian habitat. As part of the RiverLife: Almond & Avon Project, works are being undertaken in conjunction with landowners and volunteers to buffer the river from agricultural impacts by planting trees in the headwaters of the River Avon near Falkirk, including installing drain caps and new head walls, brash banking, willow spilling and fencing. Great opportunity to work with the local community to reverse some of the impacts of the past, protect livelihoods and existing payment mechanisms and create and protect spawning habitat.
