About us

The Wyre Rivers Trust was formed by three local interest groups, in its earliest guise the trust undertook a number of projects which aimed to improve the Wyre for migratory fish species. Recently the trust became a host under the ‘DEFRA’ Catchment Based Approach Initiative and formed the Wyre Waters Catchment Partnership. The aim of this partnership is to use collaboration to improve the state of each water body in the Wyre Catchment to a level that ensures that it will achieve good status under the Water Framework Directive by 2027.
