Halton Watershed Stewardship Program

Landowner Environmental Assistance Program

Conservation Halton offers a free environmental assistance program to landowners in its jurisdiction called Halton Watershed Stewardship (formerly the Hamilton-Halton Watershed Stewardship Program). Our mission is to protect and restore environmentally significant natural areas and watercourses (i.e. creeks and streams) in the Conservation Halton watersheds. In order to create a healthy environment, it is essential to promote a culture of environmental stewardship with private landowners.

Stewardship: The act of caring for the land to the best of one’s ability and to maintain it in a healthy state for today and for future generations.

Halton Stewardship staff will initiate contact with landowners of natural areas and watercourses to encourage good stewardship and partner with landowners on their projects to improve habitat and water quality. Halton Watershed Stewardship will respond to requests from landowners for one-on-one on-site consultation, provides resources and recommends best management practices that will lessen impacts to the natural environment.

We recognize demonstrated dedication and impact reduction through the Watershed Stewardship Award. More than 130 landowners in Conservation Halton watersheds are Watershed Stewards.
