Appreciation Day and Awards

HWSP Appreciation Day and Awards

Landowners in the Hamilton Conservation Authority watershed (including private landowners, schools and businesses) who demonstrate good land stewardship practices and or exemplify a commitment to maintain and restore natural features and watershed function, are recognized with the Watershed Stewardship Award.

Watershed Stewards understand the important role they have to play in protecting the natural features on their lands or within the watershed, have been managing their lands/contributing efforts in a way that protects the health of the watershed, and are willing to enter into a voluntary handshake agreement to continue to protect and preserve the natural features and watercourses on their property and promote good land stewardship practices.

Watershed Stewards Appreciation Day offers both learning and social opportunities for our award winners. The event has traditionally taken place annually in August in conjunction with Conservation Halton (CH) as part of the Hamilton Harbour Watershed Stewardship Project (HHWSP).
