DVRN

Who We Are

Our vision is healthy rivers, abundant wildlife, valued by communities.  We welcome your help to realise our collective ambitions across the Swale, Ure, Nidd, Ouse and Wharfe catchments.

As a CaBA catchment partnership, we bring together organisations and individuals with an interest in preserving and enhancing the benefits provided by our rivers and wider catchments. Be that plentiful, clean water; high quality, connected habitats supporting diverse and abundant wildlife; tranquil green spaces for recreation and wellbeing; or natural carbon capture and protection from flooding.

Working together we can achieve so much more to improve the quality, biodiversity and function of our rivers and the resilience and wellbeing of our communities than we can independently. We need your support to help us continue to drive forward strategic, collective action across our catchments for the benefit of all.
