Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites rural landowners to two Countryside Stewardship landowner workshops – Environmental Planning for Farm Landlords and Tree Identification Walk and Talk. Both workshops take place at Terra Cotta Conservation Area, 14452 Winston Churchill Bld., Halton Hills.

On September 19, from 7 to 9 p.m., landowners who rent or are interested in renting their agricultural land to local farmers can attend this information session on sustainable agricultural practices. Participants will learn about best management practices and funding available for projects that protect water, air and soil quality.

On September 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., CVC invites rural landowners to walk the trails of Terra Cotta Conservation Area. Learn basic tree identification skills and receive pointers on how to maintain and manage tree and forest health at home.

Admission to both workshops is free thanks to support from CVC’s regional and municipal partners. The workshops are for landowners living within the Credit River watershed; however landowners from outside the watershed are welcome, space permitting.

CVC was established by an act of the province in 1954 with a mandate to protect all natural resources other than minerals in the area drained by the Credit River. We have been working for almost 60 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River watershed for present and future generations.
