Species at Risk Workshop

Tags:

In partnership with SimplyAg Solutions Inc., we are hosting a Species at Risk (SAR) Workshop on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 9am to 4pm at our office in Melfort.  This free workshop is open to producers that are interested in learning about Species at Risk in Saskatchewan.  This workshop will provide details on identification techniques, how to determine which SAR habitat you have on your farm and ranch and how you can manage for SAR while benefiting your farm or ranch operation.  You will have the opportunity to complete a farm/ranch assessment where you will identify the different habitat types on your farm or ranch and work through an action plan where you will work through some species specific BMPs.  You can find out more about the Saskatchewan Species at Risk Farm Program at http://simplyag.ca/brochure/ or by contacting our local program representative.

For more details and to register, please contact Morgan Leigh, Saskatchewan Species at Risk Farm Program Representative, at 306-921-6631.

Species at Risk in Saskatchewan

Categories: Tags:

Species at Risk are plant or animal species that have populations that are declining to the point of disappearing all together.  These species are often sensitive to human activity and natural events, and require careful consideration and management to ensure their survival and protection.  The Saskatchewan Species at Risk Farm Program from SimplyAg Solutions Inc. works to help protect, enhance, and increase awareness of species at risk on farms in Saskatchewan; enables producers to complete a voluntary and confidential farm self-assessment to develop a Species at Risk Farm Action Plan; and provides producers the opportunity to accessing funding through the Saskatchewan Species at Risk Farm Program.  You can learn more about the “target species” for this program at http://simplyag.ca/target-species/.

Kitchen Table Workshops – Let us bring the workshop to you!

Categories: Tags:

Are you interested in finding out about the Farm Stewardship Program and the Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program? Don’t want to miss out on funding opportunities for your farming operation? The Carrot River Valley Watershed Technician is coming out to farms over the next couple of months to give producers the run down on these two programs at no cost or obligation to you. All you need to do is book a time with our Technician, invite over a few of your neighbours, supply the coffee, and then sit back, listen and learn about these programs and cost-shared funding available to producers in our area!

Each kitchen table visit can be tailored to suite your specific needs. Various topics can be discussed such as water source development & management, waterway erosion control, forage conversion for erosion control or salinity control, variable rate fertilizer application, creek crossings, grain bag recycling, and more. Land can be pre-assessed for eligibility for forage conversion and we supply aerial imagery of land you are considering completing a project on at each visit.

Invite your neighbours out, swap project ideas, ask questions, and make a fun afternoon or evening of it! Our Technician can fill your applications out with you and help identify cost-shared funding programs that may be a fit for your project ideas. Take this opportunity to connect with your local Agri-Environmental Group Plan Technician and be kept in the loop on future opportunities.

The application deadline for these two programs is August 1st, 2017 so it is important to get your applications rolling soon. Simply contact Charlotte Gayler, AAg at the Carrot River Valley Watershed Association at 306-920-8166 or 306-752-1270 or email crwatershedaegp@gmail.com to book your kitchen table workshop today!
