East Wicklow Rivers Trust

Protecting, conserving and improving Wicklow’s surface water bodies

DonateSubscribe

The East Wicklow Rivers Trust formed in 2019 from a core group of people who had come together with concerns about the impact of water flow on the Vartry river. 

The Trust covers an area of over 1300 square kilometers, stretching from Bray to Arklow. Our area of interest includes the Vartry, Avoca, and Dargle rivers, and all the other rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands that flow to the Irish Sea in County Wicklow. 

Trusts are independent community-led charitable organisations that delivery education, water management advice and practical conservation work.
