Forth Environment Link (FEL) began life in 1989 as the Kippen Nature Club, with the aim of teaching children about biodiversity and nature. The club won several prestigious awards. In response to community need and interest, the organisation grew in both mandate and geography, expanding to include adult education and demonstration projects. The organisation changed its name to the Kippen Environment Centre, and then in 2005 became Forth Environment Link, a company limited by guarantee with charitable status.
FEL serves three local authority areas - Stirling, Clackmannanshire and Falkirk. In 2008 Forth Valley Food Links merged with Forth Environment Link, bringing an additional focus on sustainable local food production and consumption. FEL is now a leading provider of environmental education and action for sustainable living in the Forth Valley area and beyond. To find out more about us, check out our current projects.
