Do you live in the Lake Simcoe, Nottawasaga or Severn Sound Watersheds? Do you have a stream, shoreline, wetland, pond or river on your farm property? If so, the Water's Edge Transformation (WET) might be the cost-share program for you.
Program features include: getting one-one-one advice from a local watershed specialist, combining multiple projects into one application for activities in 2014, and telling us what percentage of cost-share you need to complete your proposed projects. All applications are completed online at www.farmprograms.net.
