What is the Hampshire Avon Catchment Partnership? Our partners all play a part in determining the health of our river environment in one way or another. By working together, we aim to protect and enhance the health of the Avon catchment for the future.
The Avon and a number of its tributaries are ‘chalk streams’. Chalk streams are a globally rare type of river famed for their crystal clear waters which support a wide range of plants and animals, including some of the country’s most iconic species, such as the salmon, water vole and otter. We are fortunate that many of the world’s chalk streams are found here in the Hampshire Avon catchment.
