Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites rural landowners to a free environmental workshop on Tuesday, March 19 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Inglewood Community Centre, 15855 McLaughlin Rd, Inglewood.

The workshop will highlight ways landowners can protect the quality of their land and water, and how their actions impact the health of their families, communities and environment.

“Many workshop participants are surprised to learn about all the services CVC has to offer rural landowners,” said Mike Puddister, Director of Restoration and Stewardship for CVC.

CVC offers environmental stewardship services such as invasive species management, reforestation, naturalization, and stream and pond restoration. CVC’s Stewardship Coordinators can also help access funding programs to help offset the financial costs of undertaking a restoration project.

At the workshop, landowners will work through Your Guide to Caring for the Credit, a handbook that provides tools and resources on how to best manage their properties. CVC’s staff will discuss topics such as forests, wetlands, septic systems, water wells and native species landscaping.

“Participants leave with a sense of empowerment, knowing they have the knowledge and the tools to get started on their stewardship action plans,” said Puddister.

Light refreshments will be provided. Participants will receive custom aerial photos and maps of their property, the handbook and a homeowner stewardship kit.

Registration is required by March 11. Landowners should own one acre or more of rural property and reside in the Credit River watershed. Those interested are asked to call 1-800-668-5557 ext. 436 or email [email protected].

Conservation Authorities are a provincial/municipal partnership. 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 over 50 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River Watershed for present and future generations.
