CVC workshop on land and water care

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 will take place on March 7 from 9:30am to 2:30pm at Centre 2000 in 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.

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%. Grants are subject to eligibility and grant caps.

Lunch is provided and all participants  will receive custom maps of their property.

The workshops are free of charge.

Interested landowners should reside in the Credit River watershed and own at least one acre of rural property.
