New grants for landowners to take environmental action

Being a good steward of your rural property just became a little easier. Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is offering new grants for rural property owners to carry out environmental projects such as upgrading wells, restoring streams, planting trees, controlling invasive plants and more.

The Landowner Action Fund is available to rural landowners within the Credit River watershed. Grants range from 50 to 100 per cent, with grant caps, and are subject to eligibility requirements. To be eligible, landowners must complete a Landowner Action Plan.

Creating an action plan is simple. Attend a one-day Caring for Your Land and Water or Caring for Your Horse and Farm workshop. Staff will guide you through an assessment of your property to help determine what kind of environmental improvements are best for you.

Project funds are limited for 2014. Register today for a workshop to be the first to take advantage of this exciting new initiative. You will receive custom aerial photos and maps of your property. Lunch will be provided.

The Landowner Action Fund and free workshops are generously funded by CVC’s regional and municipal partners.
