Environmental Stewardship

Stewardship is personal responsibility for taking care of another person's property.

Resources for Residents

Halton residents have inherited a rich and diverse natural legacy that includes a wide range of plants and wildlife, unusual features and areas of spectacular beauty. The best way we know to protect this legacy is through private stewardship.

Woodlands Stewardship Program

Halton Region offers a Woodlands Stewardship Program which provides funding for the preparation of a Forest Management Plan, purchase and planting of nursery stock, and also no-cost tree marking services. 

The goal of this program is to increase awareness in stewardship of forested areas and to increase the quantity and quality of forested areas in Halton for the long term.
