Free Property Consultations

HWSP Free Property Consultations

HWSP staff offer free on-site consultation to landowners in both the rural and urban area. Staff are available to discuss the natural heritage features and values found on a property, to recommend best management practices to improve the natural environment, and to review opportunities for habitat restoration and water quality improvement projects.

The HWSP has been assisting landowners for over 25 years, and are pleased to recognize those that are good stewards of the environment through the Watershed Steward Awards.
