  • A Resilient Network of Habitats
  • A Dynamic and More Natural River System
  • A River for People: Accessible, Fun and Culturally Vibrant
  • A Water-Friendly Farming Catchment
  • A Knowledgeable and Water-Friendly End-User Community
  • Joined-up Thinking and Investment at a Catchment Scale

More information about each the outcomes can be found by reading our plan for The Next Three Years.

Have your say; take part in the Environment Agency’s consultation “Current condition and challenges for the future: Solway Tweed river basin district”. This public on-line consultation gives you the opportunity to comment on the current challenges and threats which you think face the Eden and to provide your views and ideas on what is required to meet these challenges. Your answers will help to develop the second Solway Tweed River Basin Plan, which includes the River Eden. Runs until June 2014.

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.

Get your feet wet; and join in one of the many volunteer activities going on around the Eden Catchment to improve our rivers and lakes. You can find out how to get involved here.
