October 6, 2019 – Find out how to tackle the most common issues affecting the health of your rural property at Credit Valley Conservation’s (CVC) free webinar, Caring for Your Land and Water, on Tuesday, October 20 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Algae blooms and bacteria in ponds and streams, nuisance wildlife like geese, invasive species, and threats to well water quality are problems many rural landowners face but don’t know how to deal with.

“Knowing more about the natural features on your property, like forests, wetlands and streams, will help you manage them so you can enjoy them for years to come,” says Karen Buckle, Coordinator of Rural Landowner Outreach at CVC. “Everything is connected. For example, the quality of your drinking water can be affected by how you manage your gardens or how often you pump out your septic tank. We want to help you connect the dots.”

Participants will have the opportunity to work with CVC’s stewardship specialists to create a plan for their property and to learn about funding for land and water improvement projects.

Register by October 18 at or 1-800-668-5557 ext. 221. Preference is given to rural landowners in the Credit River Watershed with a property of one acre or more.
