Welcome to Aire Rivers Trust

If Yorkshire truly is God’s own country then the Aire must run through its heart. Flowing from Malham to the River Ouse at Airmyn, the River Aire runs through an enormously varied catchment. The distance from Malham to Airmyn is 58 miles. However it takes the river over 90 miles to meander through the 228 square mile catchment. Both shallow upland streams and city becks flow into 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 habitat
The Aire Rivers Trust believes in connecting people, places and nature.

Our vision for the River Aire is:

“It will be a thriving river valued for its environmental, social and economic benefits, and which is actively appreciated by the community for its diverse ecology and contribution to flood risk management.”

Why are we doing this?

DNAire is an example of project that helps both people and wildlife. From Leeds to Gargrave we are connecting communities to their river. We want to make the River Aire an exciting and enjoyable destination to visit. DNAire builds on many years of work to improve water quality and connect the river for fish life.

It is just one of many exciting projects that are making our river a better place for people and nature.
