Findhorn Watershed Initiative

Partnering with Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust on a creative and cultural programme for the lower catchment area of the River Findhorn.

To support the community engagement strand of the Findhorn Watershed Initiative, the Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust has commissioned Findhorn Bay Arts to deliver a programme of creative and cultural engagements in the lower River Findhorn catchment area.

Inspired by Destination Tweed‘s ‘Connecting Threads’ project and building upon previous collaborations to bring Mark Zygadlo’s ‘WaterOrgan’ and SCOTLAND: The Big Picture’s ‘Riverwoods’ film to the Findhorn Bay Festival, keep an eye on our newsletter and social media to see how this partnership develops.

About the Findhorn Watershed Initiative

Coordinated action for nature recovery and connection, at a watershed-scale

The Findhorn Watershed Initiative is a multi-generational vision to restore a mosaic of nature rich habitats, grow a culture of nature connection and enable a thriving nature-based economy for the people and places of the Findhorn watershed, from the Monadhliath Mountains to the Moray Firth.

Catalysed by the global drive towards net zero and ecosystem restoration, the Initiative brings together land managers, communities, businesses, and other river users in an accelerated, collaborative programme of habitat restoration, carbon sequestration and river stewardship.

Led by local environmental conservation intermediary – the Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust – the Findhorn Watershed Initiative was created in direct response to the Trust’s 2021-26 Management Plan which outlines its commitment to the conservation and restoration of its river catchments, as well as global frameworks, such as the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration.
