Bristol Avon Rivers Trust (BART) put healthy rivers at the heart of community life. We use education to empower, environmental enhancements to transform, pioneering research to influence, and advocacy to energise. We work hand-in-hand with companies like yours to deliver meaningful change to create a sense of legacy for our rivers. BART believes that people who spend more time outdoors enjoy better physical and emotional well-being and are happier and more productive as a result.

Our nature lead Corporate enrichment days get teams working outdoors, together for the good of our waterways.

Our team building experiences enable employees to build lasting connections with their colleagues, reconnect with themselves and make a positive difference to the world around them. Work with us and your whole company will feel the benefits – and our rivers will too.

Wessex Water staff have had a great time volunteering with BART over the last few months. Our staff have built river structures and helped with bank management on the Cam Brook near Midford and have litter picked on the River Trym at Badocks Wood, Bristol. Both teams fed back on how enthusiastic and knowledgeable Alec and the BART staff are and how much they enjoyed their volunteering activity. Very many thanks to Alec and the whole BART team.” Jennifer Staton, Wessex Water

We offer bespoke team building experiences which encourage your employees to grow together as they bring about meaningful change for Bristol’s rivers.
