>  TECHNICAL INVESTIGATIONS, CONSIDERING: 
            - BIOPHYSICAL + ECOLOGICAL INVENTORIES
            - URBAN FOREST / CANOPY ASSESSMENTS
            - WATERSHED MAPPING + ANALYSIS
>  STAKEHOLDER CONSULTATION
>  PARK + RECREATION PLANNING + DESIGN
>  STRATEGIES FOR RESTORATION/ENHANCEMENT
>  COMPREHENSIVE REPORTING + MEASURES OF SUCCESS

Green infrastructure refers to a network of natural areas that perform valuable ecological functions and provide benefits to both people and wildlife. Green infrastructure also refers to the engineered systems that mimic natural processes (e.g. constructed wetlands for stormwater management).

Many jurisdictions are undertaking Green Infrastructure Network (GIN) planning initiatives as a means to coordinate management actions across departmental mandates, leverage limited resources and more effectively address sustainability goals.

The establishment of Green Infrastructure Networks can help local communities more effectively manage natural and urban environments and achieve the following objectives:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• Permit natural ecosystem functions to work as they are intended, thereby reducing our reliance on traditional infrastructure (ie to manage stormwater) and long-term capital burdens.

• Provide opportunities to meet community health and recreation objectives: park and trail infrastructure can be integrated into the green infrastructure planning to support community health initiatives, outdoor recreation and active transportation;

• Enhance overall ecological integrity of natural ecosystems by identifying key forest habitat, facilitating greater connectivity between core natural areas, and identifying opportunities for strategic parkland acquisition and/or natural areas restoration.
