"My well isn't up to standard; is there any funding to help me upgrade it?"
"I think I have a problem with invasive species on my property, HELP!"
"Check out the grasslands in my backyard. I’ve seen a breeding pair of Bobolink hanging around!"
These are the types of things rural landowners in the Credit River watershed will be posting on Credit Valley Conservation's new online discussion forum.
Credit Valley Conservation's Countryside Stewardship team is very excited to announce the launch of the Countryside Stewardship Connection or as they like to call it, The Connection!
Made possible by funding from the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation, this online social network brings together landowners, community groups, environmental agencies, local businesses and conservation professionals in a new and exciting way. Become a member, ask questions, provide answers, share your experiences and help build a strong and healthy rural community. Did we mention you can do all this in your pyjamas? And it's all free!
Post questions to experts and CVC staff, benefit from member perks, and be the first to know about local environmental and community events.
Need more incentive to join? If you're one of the first 100 landowners to become a member, you’ll be entered to win $50 market bucks at your local market. The landowner who posts the most by September 1st will win $100 market bucks!
Become a member and join the discussion today at www.csconnection.ca.
