SWT promotes 'Riverwoods' initiative
Riverwoods, a partnership initiative led by the Scottish Wildlife Trust, has received initial funding of £385,100 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund towards a five-year £2.9 million programme, to create a network of thriving riverbank woodlands and healthy river systems across Scotland, for the benefit of people and wildlife.
River woodlands – those that grow in, next to and near rivers – bring about a wide range of benefits from mitigating climate change, soil erosion and flooding to improving people’s health and providing important wildlife corridors across the landscape. The pioneering Riverwoods initiative will see a wide range of partners work collectively to restore this vital habitat.
