Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) will host a Caring for Your Land and Water workshop to help landowners care for natural areas on their properties and help enhance nature. The workshop takes place on Wednesday, August 15 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Monora Park Pavilion, Mono.
“This workshop is a great way for landowners to learn about different options for managing their rural properties,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation at CVC. “We provide landowners with tools and information to make improvements on their land.”
Anyone attending a Caring for Your Land and Water workshop becomes eligible to apply for CVC’s Landowner Action Fund. The fund provides up to 100 per cent financing for landowners to carry out environmental projects on their properties. Projects include well upgrades, tree planting, invasive plant control and more.
Register by August 9 at www.cvc.ca/events. For more information call 1-800-668-5557. Preference will be given to landowners owning one acre or more of rural property in the Credit River Watershed. The next Caring for Your Land and Water workshop will take place on November 24 in Caledon.
Workshops are free thanks to funding from CVC’s regional and municipal partners.
