AVON RIVER CHAMPIONS
A network connecting nature and environmental community groups in all parishes in the Avon River catchment.
We aim to encourage cooperation between parish councils, landowners, businesses and community groups in our catchment.
Clean River | Thriving Wildlife | Sustainable Communities
Community groups and organisations working in the Avon attended the Island Assembly organised by Sustainable South Hams in March 2023. We formed a network to encourage collaboration within the Avon and with other river catchment groups to help wildlife flourish and clean up our rivers. We are part of the
South Devon River Champions network
Meetings & Events
We regularly liaise with groups from other catchments in South Devon and host group discussions and field trips. To join in, promote a meeting, organise a field trip or event please use the contact form below. Sign up to Avon River Watch alerts about events in the River Avon. Artists, photographers, scientists, landowners, farmers, parish councillors, businesses and householders are warmly invited to join us.
We welcome Force4Nature volunteers for conservation, communication, event organisation and Citizen Scientists for water monitoring trained by the Westcountry Rivers Trust. We want to create awareness of the impact of over-development and poor waste management on pollution in our rivers; identify ways to create less pollution and celebrate the beauty of the River Avon at festivals and exhibitions.
