Stewardship Grants

Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation
HCTF recognizes the importance of environmental stewardship and invests in projects that create stewards. Stewards include individuals, practitioners, and community organizations who take responsibility for promoting, monitoring, conserving, and restoring ecosystems to ultimately result in enduring conservation outcomes for fish and wildlife and their habitats. Proposed projects must align with our purposes as laid out in the Wildlife Act.

HCTF prefers stewardship projects that create stewards through community-based, hands on education and engagement programs, including Citizen Science. Stewardship projects may include some on-the-ground components such as habitat restoration.

Stewardship proposals:
  • Focus on engaging people to increase their knowledge, awareness, and understanding of fish, wildlife and their habitats
  • Have the ultimate goal of changing behaviours and/or attitudes towards fish, wildlife and habitat conservation
  • May involve direct action in which people are stewarding the land (e.g., restoring a wetland, creating specific habitat features, removing invasive plants)
  • May involve indirection action in which proponents work with others to achieve positive outcomes for fish and wildlife (e.g., landowner contact programs, citizen science, hands-on educational programs).
  • Must be based on current best practices to increase conservation behaviours in the target audience.
