Forth Environment Link (FEL) began with the aim of teaching children about biodiversity and nature. It expanded to include adult education and demonstration projects. It now has charitable status and serves three local authority areas – Stirling, Clackmannanshire and Falkirk. It also has an additional focus on sustainable local food production and consumption. In 2012 FEL took over the hosting of Cycle Stirling bringing a new cycling focus to its work.
