* Granted $30,164 to Community Stream Stewardship Program for the Farm Stewardship Awareness and Conservation Initiative
The project will target landowners within south central Ontario. Seven restoration projects were projected in 2012. The selected sites are distributed geographically among the target counties, occur in different watersheds, and conserve a variety of cold-water streams, warm-water streams, wetland and upland habitats. These projects ensure the benefits will be felt across the landscape and will hopefully encourage neighboring landowners to think about habitat enhancement possibilities on their own properties. In addition, a Farm Stewardship workshop will provide information, resources, advice and encouragement to agricultural landowners looking to conserve fish and wildlife habitats on their property.
