The Eden Rivers Trust is the only charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of the River Eden, its tributaries and its surrounding countryside.
It was set up in 1996 and has carried out more than 200 projects to improve the condition of the river for its wildlife and for people to enjoy.
We are involved in saving some of the country’s most endangered species and preventing pollution by working with local people, farmers and landowners close to the river.
Much of our work involves education and explaining to people about the importance of the River Eden. In the last five years we have met and spread the word to more than 10,000 people, half of them school children from 50 different schools.
We rely entirely on grants, fund raising activities and donations to carry out our work.
Eden Rivers Trust invites you to save a river
The Saving Eden Coalition is launched! To find out what it's all about and why people are joining together to save the Eden watch our wonderful new film here. You can also see a catchment map showing all the problems with the River Eden and read our Catchment Plan to find out how you can get involved.

River Angling Survey
Please help us by completing the River Eden Angling Survey 2014 here. This survey will help show the value of angling and inform its development in this area and elsewhere.
We would like both people who have fished on the Eden catchment and
people who have not to complete the survey.
It won’t take long
and will be vital in supporting the development of angling in the Eden catchment
but also elsewhere. The research takes place in February and March 2014
