Watershed stewardship is caring for our water, air, land, and biodiversity within the ecologically connected area of a watershed. The challenge is balancing human and economic requirements with the needs of the natural environment which means that we need to plan, promote and implement management practices that contribute to restoration and protection of our natural resources.
Private landowners in our urban and rural communities play a key role in ensuring we have healthy watersheds now and in the future. Let us know if we can help you with a reforestation or forest management project, planting trees, creating a rain garden, greening your school yard or decommissioning an unused well.
