River Ecology, Conservation & Restoration
The Wye & Usk Foundation is a charity concerned with restoring the habitat, water quality and fisheries of the rivers Wye and Usk. The Foundation is more than just a lobbying organisation: through a series of partnership projects, we are raising significant sums of money to remedy problems such as habitat degradation, poor water quality and diffuse pollution, barriers to fish migration and over-exploitation of our fisheries.
In 2000 we became a registered charity with the following objectives:
- To conserve, protect, rehabilitate and improve the salmon and other indigenous species of animal and plant life of the rivers Wye and Usk, their tributaries, streams and watercourses (“the River”) and the banks, riparian lands and catchments of the river (“the River Corridor”) and …
- To advance the education of the public in the conservation of rivers, river corridors and their animal and plant life and the need for conservation, protection, rehabilitation and improvement of such environments.

Tour Guides for Herefordshire and Welsh Boarder
Marches Tours & Talks – our tour guide association – takes its name from this area of western England, which is called ‘The Marches’ meaning a ‘boundary’ – the boundary between England and Wales. One of the counties in these Marcher lands is Herefordshire – still a secret place known only to those who really seek it out. Here you will see an unspoilt rural landscape at its most beautiful, where you can wander and walk. We have no motorways and no theme parks – just a slower pace of life which gives you time to think and relax.
Each of the CDs are on sale at £5 from local Tourist information centres or direct from marches Tours and Talks (£6 inc p&p) or visit http://www.marchestourstalks.co.uk/
