Welcome to The Bay Trust

We are an environmental education, conservation and preservation charity established nearly 50 years ago. As CEO, my aim is to work collaboratively with communities to co-create new approaches to managing our natural environment and making the most of opportunities to inspire social action and impact for community health and wellbeing together. Principally we believe in the fundamental development of children and young people to learn through nature and to develop skills that will help them to find work, build resilience and be the innovative leaders of the future.
