The Conservation Halton Stewardship Program aims to enhance natural areas in our community and our connection to them. One way we do this is by conserving natural lands and engaging people in hands-on projects and workshops.
This is made possible in part by the support of corporate partners in the community. Supporters of the Stewardship Program receive a number of benefits including:
- Opportunities for you and your staff to participate in events and workshops which are fun, engaging and benefit the community
- Recognition on the Conservation Halton Stewardship Program e-newsletter, webpages and social media channels
- Recognition at the Watershed Stewards Appreciation Day
- Recognition in the Conservation Halton Stewardship Thank You Report
- Complimentary passes to Conservation Halton parks
If you are interested in learning more about how your organization can become involved with the Stewardship Program as a supporter then please contact the Conservation Halton Foundation.
