Tay & Earn Trust Projects

Regeneration of the inner Tay and Earn is a significant part of our work and the Trust in partnership with others is developing several physical regeneration projects. Environmental management and research projects along with education and community involvement are also core areas of work.

Environmental Management & Research

Managing and maintaining the river banks and footpaths, supporting local bird life, bees and wildflowers are important tasks for the Trust in partnership with Tay Salmon Fisheries.

Research relating to renewable energy and sustainable resources which helps to sustain and manage the river and it’s environs is also vital.

Education & Communities

Education and awareness raising is one of our primary aims and the Trust works with local schools, Perth College UHI students and other groups.

Activities include environmental study days, outdoor adventure activities and other teaching programmes which support the needs of the College or schools.

Regeneration Projects

Our regeneration work is helping to improve access and create a better infrastructure on the river to attract more visitors to the area. It will also help to create jobs and employment opportunities.

Providing a framework for future regeneration projects (e.g. Masterplan) supported by partners such as Perth and Kinross Council, Tay Salmon Fisheries, Fife Rural Partnership and others is crucial.
