Welcome to Aire Rivers Trust
Rivers are the arteries that connect our landscape and cities. Flowing from Malham to the River Ouse at Airmyn, the River Aire runs through an enormously varied landscape.
Our river brings wildlife from the countryside into the heart of the cities of Leeds and Bradford. Although a curlew flying from Malham to Airmyn would only travel 58 miles it takes the river over 90 miles to wind its way through the 228 square miles of the valley that flows into it.
Along the River Aire you will find shallow upland and hidden city becks streams full of life. Volunteer with us to discover creatures like the kingfishers, otters and Atlantic salmon that live in our great river.
The Aire Rivers Trust is a charity working to improve the River Aire. Our volunteers and staff work to help river wildlife flourish and connect people to their river. Our work helps reduce flooding, clear up litter and create new space for nature.
