Sustaining Nature within an Urban Development
This tour will include the Kanata environmental area around the Kizell provincially-significant wetland. The tour will focus on how nature can be sustained within an urban development. On one side of the wetlands, participants will walk on pathways between the natural areas and urban development to see how nature was integrated into the urban plan, as an example of a garden-city concept. Then, on the other side of the wetlands, we will discuss how development can occur while trying to maintain linkage to the natural environment. During the tour, there will be stops along the way to see natural systems and discuss the participants’ views on what could happen in the area. Note that wildlife may be encountered as it is widespread within the area.
