Stewardship

stewardship.jpgWatershed Stewardship is the responsible care and management of our land, water and wildlife resources through positive environmental actions.  Everyone has a role to play and has the opportunity to be an environmental steward.  There are various programs and resources available to community groups, schools, organizations, private landowners and other interested individuals through our Conservation Authority and many other organizations.

Some examples of stewardship activities include:

  • Planting native species of trees, shrubs, grasses and forbs
  • Protecting and restoring wildlife habitat (food, water, shelter, space)
  • Protecting waterways through clean-ups, fencing and shoreline plantings
  • Practicing energy and water saving techniques
  • Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
  • Educating others

Lower Trent Conservation is committed to watershed stewardship and implements positive environmental practices within our organization, including:

  • Monitoring and assessing the state of our watershed
  • Providing advice and technical assistance 
  • Promoting community involvement 
  • Building partnerships with all levels of government, environmental groups, businesses, residents and landowners
  • Creating educational resources
  • Managing our properties to benefit wildlife and protect land and water
  • Implementing green practices in our buildings as guided by our Green Committee
