CLIENT: City of Surrey

Surrey Biodiversity Conservation Strategy Cover
Richmond Noxious Weed Survey 2

Diamond Head planners and biologists assessed natural areas and corridors to develop Surrey's Green Infrastructure Network (GIN). Forests, wetlands, creeks, riparian areas, and other habitat areas were assessed for their wildlife value, community development potential, recreation potential and storm-water management. Supporting policy recommendations were made to guide future development planning, parkland acquisition & protection, green building standards, agricultural biodiversity and climate change education & awareness. Two monitoring frameworks were developed: one to help the City detect ecological changes in the GIN, and another to manage the City's internal performance and progress with their biodiversity objectives, including specific management benchmarks for comparison with other municipalities across Canada and abroad.
