River Tay

Part of Rivers and Waterways

Our River Tay is designated as a special area of conservation. This is mainly due to it supporting Atlantic Salmon!

What about the beavers on the Tay - do you remember what their favourite thing to do was?

Have a go at River Bingo - watch the video about the longest river in Britain - the Severn - and listen for the words in the table.

What if we want to store water and make use of the power that the water brings as it moves along.

This is called a dam. There are many kinds of dams - find out more next!
