The Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust was founded in 2006 by enthusiasts who care about the people and wildlife of the Blackwater Valley. We are a registered charity, with a dozen dedicated Trustees using their wide range of backgrounds to help conserve and improve its natural environment. This includes managing its countryside, and preserving its wildlife habitats and landscapes by making conservation projects happen. And that's not all - we organise events, and encourage the public to take part in our activities, educating them about and introducing them to the wildlife. In short, anything we can to make the Blackwater Valley a better place to live.
If you'd like a taste of what we get up to, visit our website. You'll see reports and pictures of walks and talks we've put on, environmental news from around the Valley, and general items of interest to anyone who might share our passion for this hidden gem of a Valley where we live.
