Natural Course is the UK’s only EU funded LIFE Integrated Project.

We are a collaboration of public, private and third sector organisations working together to help to deliver real improvements to rivers and the water environment across North West England.

Natural Course is designing projects to better understand and overcome some of the biggest barriers preventing the achievement of ‘good ecological status’ under the EU Water Framework Directive in the North West River Basin District.

We are building capacity and trialling new, innovative ways of working.  Our projects are highly scalable and transferable, enabling us to better influence policy.
