Prosperity is in Our Nature
Near-urban nature is comprised of the forests, river valleys, wetlands, savannahs, and other ecological features that surround and intersect our communities. Near-urban nature is critical to the health and well-being of all life in the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) and is one of our greatest resources for adapting to climate change.
Recognizing the interconnectedness of natural systems, the SONC Coalition is developing a near-urban nature strategy for the GGH. There will be a specific focus on lands that fall outside of current urban boundaries including lands within the Greenbelt and its urban river valleys. Of greatest attention will be connectivity of the natural landscape and opportunities to identify, protect and enhance ecologically significant habitats and corridors throughout the region.
