UK River Prize

"Celebrating best practice in river restoration and catchment management"

 
The 4th running of the prestigious UK River Prize will aim to attract another great selection of best practice river restoration and catchment management projects from across the UK. The very best projects will be invited to the UK River Prize Awards Dinner in Nottingham on the 24th April, where the winner will be awarded the Nigel Holmes Trophy.

Background

In 2014 the Inaugural England River Prize was awarded at the River Restoration Centre's (RRC's) Annual Network Conference. After the success of 2014, the prize was expanded to include Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, under the new name of the UK River Prize.

Each year the winner receives a cash prize and the Nigel Holmes Trophy (right). Named after a friend and colleague who did so much for restoration, the award looks to inspire and celebrate innovation and best practice in river restoration and catchment management.
