Welcome to Aire Rivers Trust
We are the only environmental charity dedicated to improving the rivers that flow through the Aire valley.
Flowing from Malham to the River Ouse at Airmyn, the River Aire runs through an enormously varied landscape. Our river brings creatures like the kingfishers, otters and Atlantic salmon into the heart of the cities of Leeds and Bradford.
A curlew flying from Malham to Airmyn would travel a mere 58 miles but 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 our great river. Our work helps reduce flooding, clear up litter and create new space for nature.
