Caring for Your Land & Water Workshop
Participating in CVC’s Countryside Stewardship program for rural non-farm landowners typically starts by attending a Caring for Your Land & Water workshop. Landowners receive aerial photos and maps showing the important natural areas and features on their property. Landowners are introduced to issues facing the Credit River watershed and learn how their land connects to larger issues and solutions.
Workshop participants receive a free copy of Your Guide to Caring for the Credit and detailed instruction on how to use the guide to develop a land management Action Plan. Experts are on hand to provide advice and recommendations. Workshops are a great opportunity to meet with neighbours dealing with similar issues and share information and experiences.
Caring for Your Land and Water workshops are held throughout the year. To find dates for upcoming Caring for Your Land and Water workshops as well as dates for our series of Landowner Workshops on special topics, visit our Events page.
Caring for Your Land & Water workshop participants who complete a Landowner Action Plan can apply for the Landowner Action Fund and get funding for environmental stewardship projects on their land.
