This website operates to inform the public, design professionals, and government decision makers about the relationship between people and urban ecosystems.   By offering an accessible path to research results, we hope to support your desire to have a positive impact on urban nature – be it an activity or just appreciating it.  This web site also offers resources and specific guidelines for landscape design and stewardship activities that improve personal, community, environmental and economic wellbeing in urban settings.
