CVC to hold Watershed Plan open houses

ERIN – Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites local residents to attend one of its upcoming Watershed Plan open houses to learn how the health of the Credit River Watershed has evolved from the 1950s to today. CVC wants residents’ input to help plan for the future.

“We’re sharing the findings of the first phase of the Watershed Plan, that looks at how the health of the watershed has evolved over the past 70 years,” said program manager Kata Bavric.

“With this information in mind, we encourage our watershed community to provide their input; we want feedback on the most urgent environmental priorities and what aspects of the local environment are most important to residents that live, work and play in the watershed.”

The plan will help provide understanding of the past and plan for the future health of the Credit River Watershed, according to a press release. 

The plan identifies current and future conditions in forests, wetlands, streams, and groundwater, and proposes solutions to address issues identified.


A online open house for those who cannot attend the in-person event takes place Oct. 26 from 7 to 8pm.

On Nov. 8 from 6 to 8pm at the Alton Legion Hall (1267 Queen Street West, Alton) there will be an in-person open house, followed by another on Nov. 18 from 10am to noon at the Susan Fennell Sportsplex (500 Ray Lawson Boulevard, Multipurpose Room 2) in Brampton.

Free CVC park pass

The in-person open houses are family-friendly and feature interactive activities. Attendees will receive a free CVC park day pass while supplies last.
