Enrick Riverwoods Restoration

The Affric Highlands initiative aims to facilitate a partnership of communities and landowners, to increase natural capital through rewilding and create sustainable nature-based economies. The project aims to achieve an innovative model for ecological restoration, that increases capacity for carbon sequestration, retains the economic value of land within local communities, and demonstrates potential for replication and adaptation in other locations. The Enrick Riverwoods Restoration project is delivering the creation of 2km of woodland along the River Enrick.
