Your Guide to Caring for the Credit

Your Guide to Caring for the Credit is a specially designed handbook developed for the rural non-farm landowner.  The guide can help you inventory the natural features on your property, assess your management practices and create an Action Plan to address any issues that you identify.

The guide itself consists of a series of worksheets that cover all aspects of managing a rural property from septic systems to forest management, energy conservation and construction activities. Worksheets are broken down into individual topics so you can easily identify which actions are of highest priority. Every worksheet has its own comprehensive resource list to ensure you have the information you need to make decisions and take action.

Your Guide to Caring for the Credit is available through participation at any of our Caring for Your Land & Water workshops. Once you complete your Action Plan, apply to the Landowner Action Fund for funding to get started on your stewardship project.
