If you are committed to wildlife and water friendly land care practices, and want to see ecologically friendly yard and garden care become more wide spread, then consider asking HAT to become a Habitat Steward. Habitat Stewards commit in writing to:
- install efficient irrigation and naturescaping
- avoid pesticides and synthetic fertilizers
- remove invasive weeds like broom and daphne
- spread the word about protecting species at risk on private property
- keep oil and other toxins out of rain drains and waterways
- maintain and protect soil with leaf mulch
- plant and protect stream buffers for fish and other aquatic life
During a property visit with one of HAT's biologists, you will receive a land care prescription, with personalized suggestions for your property to help improve habitat and maintain function. Your agreement is recognized with a sign for your property that will tell your neighbours and visitors that you are making difference for the environment in your community.
Land Care Agreements are voluntary and not legally binding, nor do they pass on to future property owners.
Call HAT at 250 995-2428 to inquire about an appointment.
