Welcome to the website for Felton CAN - Climate and Nature!
Felton and Thirston are neighbouring parishes in the County of Northumberland, England, joined by bridges over the River Coquet.
Felton CAN aims to protect our environment by conserving wildlife and building resilience to climate breakdown.

Felton CAN goes fishing, but not for fish

Together with community groups along the River Coquet and its tributaries downstream of Rothbury, we are gearing up to take samples to monitor water quality, on a monthly basis beginning on 1st April.
Test kits provided by the Environment Agency will enable us to measure electrical conductivity, temperature, acidity, and phosphate, nitrate and ammonia content. This will be supplemented by sampling of invertebrates living in the river, which are a good guide to its health.
Test sites will probably be on the Back Burn, on the Coquet both up and downstream of the sewage treatment works, and on the Hazon Burn and Thirston Burn.

If you'd like to help, please e-mail

See our display on the River Coquet here.

Two of our directors have purchased a 22 acre site near Widdrington Station, to create a nature reserve. Felton CAN members will be planting trees there during 2024.

1,000 trees planted
This winter, CAN has planted a total of 1,000 trees at Northumberland Zoo, land near Wintrick, around Park View and at Felton Primary School, with lots of help from teachers and students. This brings our total to 4,000 trees over the past three years
