Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) will host two workshops to help landowners manage the natural features on their property and protect the environment. Landowners are invited to the Caring for your Horse and Farm workshop on Thursday, April 7 and Caring for your Land and Water workshop on Saturday, April 9. Both workshops run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Limehouse Memorial Hall in Halton Hills.
“Rural landowners and equine operators make valuable contributions to the health of the environment through the actions they take on their properties,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation at CVC. “These workshops help landowners identify actions and learn more about CVC’s grant programs and services.”
Using a step-by-step stewardship guide, along with aerial photos and maps of a landowner’s property, participants learn which actions they can take to help the environment and maintain the beauty of the countryside.
“CVC’s Countryside Stewardship team is available to help landowners care for the countryside and access funding for projects such as septic system repairs, planting native trees and bringing back lost wetlands,” 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 April 4 at www.creditvalleyca.ca/events. For more information call 1-800-668-5557 ext. 436. Preference will be given to landowners owning 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.
