Environmental Management & Research
Managing and maintaining the river banks and footpaths is an important and ongoing task for the Trust in partnership with Tay Salmon Fisheries. The Trust has also undertaken research projects with the Scottish Bio Fuels Programme and Edinburgh University
Education and awareness raising is one of our primary aims and the Trust works with a wide range of schools and community groups. The programme includes environmental study days with activities such as pond dipping, life cycle of the salmon, bulb and tree planting, bees, local wildflowers and bird life. Other activities include water sports such as canoeing and kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, bush craft, fishing and archery.
The regeneration of the Tay and Earn is one of our primary objectives. In partnership with Perth and Kinross Council, Tay Salmon Fisheries and others the Trust produced the Inner Tay Masterplan 2012-22 and is developing a number of regeneration projects.
