Celebrating the River North Tyne
Our Native North Tyne project celebrates what’s interesting and unique about the River North Tyne and the River Rede which sit at the top of the Tyne catchment. It helps people get out and discover the local landscape, as well as the unique and endangered species that are only found in this part of our river.
Native North Tyne is made possible by the The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we are able to work with local groups and communities to run activities that engage people with their local river in fun and creative ways. This funding provides opportunities for people to take part in new activities, learn skills and build confidence, post-COVID, by working together to improve the local river.
The River North Tyne and River Rede are home to some unique and endangered species, the only places that these species are found in the whole of the Tyne catchment:
How can you get involved?

If you’d like to get involved please contact Liz Walters.
Local people are crucial in helping us to protect this special landscape so why not get involved?
Farmers and landowners
We’ll be working with farmers and landowners in in the North Tyne to promote environmentally friendly land management to improve the health of the river.
