Landowner Programs

The Conservation Halton watershed is made up of many natural areas, including creeks, streams, wetlands, forests, prairies and fields, as well as geological formations, that support a rich diversity of plants and animals. In addition to providing habitat for wildlife and opportunities for recreation, these natural areas support water, air and soil quality, flood, erosion and drought management, carbon storage and resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Conservation Halton is incredibly thankful to the landowners who make a commitment to protecting the natural features on their property through the Watershed Stewardship Award. Signs indicating that a landowner has received the Watershed Stewardship Award can be found throughout the watershed, usually at the end of a driveway or laneway. The awards are presented during the annual Watershed Stewards Appreciation Day in the fall.

If you are interested in learning more about the Watershed Stewardship Award and believe your property may be eligible, we encourage you to reach out to us at
