The Dales to Vale Rivers Network is a catchment partnership which brings together local people, communities, organisations and businesses to make decisions on managing the interconnected bodies of water in the catchment area.

Our website is designed to help you to better understand your local rivers, the pressures they face and how you might get involved and influence local change. Please feel free to look through our website.
