River Blackwater Catchment Trust

Welcome to our website.

The River Blackwater Catchment Trust would like to welcome you to our website where you can find information on what we do, why we do it and how you at home can get involved in some of the conservation work we do. Being a volunteer for wildlife brings it’s own rewards as many of our current membership will tell you, the wildlife seems to appreciate it and often comes around when we are out to see what is going on. We have groups who work with the red squirrel, water quality and fish stocks and preservation of many species on the heather bogland of Sliabh Beagh.

If you would like to get involved come along to one of our volunteer recruitment evenings running in Moy, Aughnacloy and Benburb in the very near future. You can also get in touch via our contact page and check out our calendar for what is happening in your area. Bookmark this page and follow our blog posts below to get the latest news.
