We can all do something to improve the quality of water in our rivers and it doesn’t necessarily mean overhauling your lifestyle! The easiest of all is to conserve water by not leaving taps running unnecessarily or by ensuring that we are careful what we put down the drain.
Whether you are a householder, farmer, own your own business or belong to a community group there will be something you can do locally to help manage and protect our water environment.

Every little helps…
There are so many simple ways you can help the environment, from recycling household waste to using reusable drinks and sandwich containers. Many organisations also run short and simple activities such as the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch and the #2minutebeachclean.
Our partners work
The Ribble Life partnership is made up of a wide range of organisations, from the Environment Agency to Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust. Find out more about our partners here.
Become a member
Membership is often vital for small charities as many receive no direct government funding and so rely on grants to deliver their work. Many of our partners offer membership packages that help support conservation (and offer some little perks!). For information on Ribble Rivers Trust membership please visit the website.
Meet the team
Agricultural shows are a great way for organisations and charities to meet the people who live in the areas they are helping to improve. Visit the events webpage for more information about where you can find us across the spring and summer.
