The Teme Catchment landscape is characterised by rolling hills and attractive valleys, with the sheep-grazed Welsh border uplands in the west giving way to the softer, more fertile countryside of the English Midlands in the east.
The rural nature of the area is reflected by high quality rivers supporting high-class fisheries and providing a variety of habitats for a wide range of flora and fauna. It is a river of national importance, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of the rare, precious plants and animals that live in the river and on its banks. Part of the River Clun is of international importance, a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) due to a very rare and special population of Fresh water pearl mussels.
The Teme suffers from excess sedimentation from agricultural practices aggravating the natural processes increasing soil and bank erosion. Reducing these effects is an important target area for the Severn Rivers Trust in the Teme catchment; along with improving fish access to many of the historical spawning sites.
