GRCA has webinars for landowners

The Grand River Conservation Authority is offering webinars on topics such as tree planting and water quality projects for landowners.

People can register to attend the live webinars or choose to wait and pull them from the GRCA website.

The GRCA has been helping landowners with tree planting for more than 60 years and they have recently been planting about 100,000 a year.

It has also worked with landowners on almost 7,000 projects worth about $56 million. Last year there were 65 projects worth about $500,000.

The result has been reduced soil erosion and much-improved water quality.

For example, there are streams that were “dead” that are now alive with trout and other fish.
