The River Restoration Centre

The River Restoration Centre is the UK's 'expert information and advice' centre for all aspects of best-practice river restoration and catchment management. RRC is an independent and impartial, not-for-profit organisation. Originally founded in 1994 as the River Restoration Project (RRP) by members drawn from the UK public, private and NGO sectors, RRC has been actively raising the profile of river restoration since 1997. RRC’s activities are set out around three core areas. Knowledge exchange providing a focal point for the exchange and dissemination of information and expertise; technical advice and assessment, providing expert input to site-specific technical issues and national initiatives through experienced river restoration practitioners; and training and guidance, developing, updating and providing resources, courses and practical learning opportunities to the growing UK restoration network.
