“Stewardship means passing the land and resources--including intact, functioning forest ecosystems--to the next generation in better condition than they were found.”


Nature Chelsea has launched a new land stewardship project, with funding support from Environment Canada’s Ecoaction program. The project will engage landowners in stewardship actions that will protect and enhance biodiversity on their properties, with a particular focus on lands that are of highest conservation value. We will do this by conducting voluntary biodiversity assessments for 30 landowners over two years and providing information on best practices to maintain biodiversity. Participating landowners will be encouraged to become certified land stewards in Chelsea. To obtain more information on the project, contact or call 819 827-6222.
