Bioregioning Tayside

“We recognize the complexity involved in nature restoration and that there are diverse views held about the financialisation of nature. As we embark on this early stage of the project, our goal is to build confidence, foster belief, and generate excitement among our communities about the immense potential this project holds for the benefit of all in eastern Perthshire and Tayside. We are dedicated to ensuring that our actions align with the values and aspirations of our local communities as we work towards a regenerative future.”
Clare Cooper

Blairgowrie & Rattray Development Trust

“Blairgowrie and Rattray have an exceptional local environment that BRDT is keen to protect, and the River Ericht, which flows through the town, is a key element of that. Thanks to work carried out by local groups involved in our Open Spaces initiative, Blairgowrie and Rattray is Scotland’s first biodiversity town, and the Trust is delighted to support this new project which will contribute to ongoing efforts to improve the river quality, the riverbanks and surrounding area.”

The Cateran Ecomuseum

“The Cateran Ecomuseum is delighted to have helped lay the foundations for this initiative through our previous work on the Ericht in 2021 and be supporting the public engagement programme through our River Detectives project”. Bill Taylor
