Tweed Foundation

The Tweed Foundation engages people of all ages with the river Tweed. Our broad educational programme includes – our schools initiative “Go Wild For Fish”, our angling initiative “TweedStart”, visiting shows and attending events. Go Wild For Fish started in 2019 and encompasses all the work we do with schools throughout the Tweed catchment. We offer short sessions and longer projects in which classes will learn about the River Tweed and the diverse animals and plants living in it. We offer sessions for different age groups and all of our lesson plans fit in with both the Scottish and English curriculums. TweedStart aims to get people throughout the Tweed catchment fishing. With particular emphasis on young people, it encourages children to take an interest in the ecology, nature and future of the river and alerts them to the importance of a healthy river system for angling. By offering both school-based sessions and TweedStart days – in which young people get an introduction to fishing with the help of fully qualified angling instructors – TweedStart provides a great opportunity for people to get into fishing.”
