Workshops for Landowners Looking to Make a Difference

Workshops for Landowners Looking to Make a Difference

Calling all homeowners, corporate and institutional property owners and agricultural landowners. We have workshops to help you enhance your property and build resilience to climate change.

Almost 85 per cent of the Credit River Watershed is privately owned. That means landowners can improve the health of the environment by taking small actions on their properties. Combined, individual efforts can have big results. For example, planting native trees attracts a variety of insects. Insects are food for migrating and breeding birds. A single mature oak tree can host the larvae of over 500 species of moth and butterfly—what a feast!

Don’t know how or where to start? We offer workshops and expert advice. We help you discover opportunities to improve your property and get conservation projects off the ground.
