Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites landowners to attend Caring for Your Land and Water, a workshop for rural property owners on Saturday October 19 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Warwick Conservation Centre, Caledon. Participants will build a plan for their property using landscape maps and CVC’s Handbook for Countryside Living.
“This workshop is great for landowners who want to learn more about their properties. There are funding programs and other services available for land and water projects that many landowners don’t know about,” said Lisa Brusse, Manager of Landowner Outreach at Credit Valley Conservation.
Attendees will discover how to bring the best of nature to their properties and ways to enhance their land and protect their water.
- Protecting your well and septic system
- Enhancing your property with native plants and trees
- Attracting wildlife and building habitat for birds and pollinators
- Applying for funding programs and other funding services for rural landowners
Register by October 15 at cvc.ca/events or 1-800-668-5557 ext. 440. Preference is given to landowners owning one acre or more of rural property in the Credit River Watershed.
