Find out how to make the most of your rural property with guidance from Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). CVC invites landowners to participate in its upcoming Caring for Your Land and Water workshop. The event takes place on Saturday, March 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Centre 2000, Erin.
“This workshop is a great way for landowners to learn about rural property management,” said Mike Puddister, Director of Restoration and Stewardship at CVC. “We provide landowners with tools and information to make environmental improvements on their property.”
Workshop participants create a Landowner Action Plan for their properties and are eligible to apply for a new CVC funding program for rural landowners. The Landowner Action Fund provides grants to rural landowners for environmental projects such as well abandonment, stream restoration, tree planting, invasive plant control, native plant gardening and more. Grant funding ranges from 50 per cent to 100 per cent. Grants are subject to eligibility and grant caps.
Lunch is provided at the workshop and all participants receive custom maps of their property.
Workshops are free thanks to funding from CVC’s regional and municipal partners. Interested landowners should reside in the Credit River watershed and own at least one acre of rural property. Register by February 27 at www.creditvalleyca.ca/events. For more information call 1-800- 668- 5557 ext. 440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
