Protect the natural beauty of the countryside with guidance from Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). Landowners are invited to the Caring for your Land and Water workshop on Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Caledon Village Place Community Room located at 18313 Hurontario Street, Caledon.
“This workshop is a great way for rural landowners to give nature a helping hand,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation at CVC. “Landowners can learn about their rural properties and create an action plan to help protect the environment.”
Over 90 per cent of the Credit River watershed is privately owned. Learning how to care for streams, ponds, wetlands and forests on your property helps protect the natural resources that we depend on.
“Taking steps to create a healthy environment on your property protects drinking water sources, biodiversity and the natural beauty of the countryside,” said Alison Qua-Enoo, CVC’s Stewardship Coordinator.
Following the workshop, participants can schedule a site visit to discuss environmental projects and funding eligibility through CVC’s Landowner Action Fund.
Register by noon February 19 at www.creditvalleyca.ca/events. For more information call 1-800-668-5557 ext. 436. Interested landowners should own one acre or more of rural property in the Credit River watershed.
Workshops are free thanks to funding from CVC’s regional and municipal partners.
