If you build it they will come. This is certainly the case with wildlife habitat. On Saturday October 5, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) hosts a workshop for rural landowners on creating and improving wildlife habitat. The workshop runs from 10 a.m. to noon at the Welcome Centre inside Terra Cotta Conservation Area, 14452 Winston Churchill Blvd, Halton Hills.

The workshop includes a tour of habitat improvement projects at the conservation area. Participants should dress for the weather and for outdoor walking.

The workshop is free, thanks to funding from CVC’s regional and municipal partners. Light refreshments are provided.

Join CVC and learn about planting gardens, restoring streams and managing forests, all with creating wildlife habitat in mind. The workshop also addresses laws that apply to wildlife habitat.

“Our health and wellness depend on a diversity of plants, animals and habitats,” said Mike Puddister, Director of Restoration and Stewardship for CVC. “Private landowners play an important role in creating and protecting wildlife habitat.”

Register online at www.creditvalleyca.ca/events or by calling 1-800-668-5557 ext. 436.

The workshop is part of CVC’s Countryside Stewardship Workshop Series that helps rural landowners protect their land, water and wildlife.
