In the country
Enhance Your Connection with Nature
Fresh air, natural beauty, and peace and tranquility. Living in the country provides many benefits, including a connection to the great outdoors that’s not possible in the city. We’re thrilled to offer funding assistance for homeowners like you who want to enhance your connection with nature, right on your own property!
Whether you’d like to plant trees and shrubs to attract wildlife or add to your view, or naturalize your streambank with wildflowers and birdboxes, we have funding for you!
We have funds available to help you:
- Plant vibrant trees, shrubs and colourful flowering plants to stabilize your streambank
- Beautify your streambank with overhanging trees and shrubs to create shade and attract wildlife
- Identify opportunities to improve your aging dam or pond structure
- Reduce home energy costs and increase privacy through tree planting
What can you do?
Bring birds, bees and butterflies and other wildlife to your home. Install bird, bat or bee boxes, plant a butterfly garden, plants trees and shrubs, or maybe even install a snake hibernaculum. We could even create a wetland or grassland! Let us know what you’re interested in and we can cover up to 50% of your project costs.
