About FoTR

FoTR Profile

Friends of Tring Reservoirs is a local conservation organisation formed in 1993 to promote the conservation of this important Site of Special Scientific Interest. With around 400 Members, FoTR has become a significant voice in the local environment and became a charity organisation in 1999. The objectives of FoTR are:
  • For the public benefit to preserve and conserve the flora, fauna and natural environment of Tring Reservoirs and surrounding areas.
