The Wessex Chalk Stream and Rivers Trust is a newly formed charity, dedicated to the guardianship, protection, enhancement and maintenance of healthy, functioning ecosystems within the river catchments and corridors of the Wessex region.
Our vision is of healthy rivers within the Wessex region which are valued and nurtured by the community and which exhibit:
Sustainable and naturally abundant wildlife
High water quality and sustained natural flows
Fully functioning ecosystems which link the rivers with their valleys
Resilience to climate change and future stresses associated with social and economic development
