BC’s Lower Mainland provides natural benefits in the order of $5.4 billion a year, or about $2,462 per person annually, according to a study released by the David Suzuki Foundation and Pacific Parklands Foundation. Nature provides a vast array of essential services we often take for granted. Trees clean our air. Forests and wetlands filter our water. Green urban spaces cool our cities and protect us from storms. And this doesn’t even account for the health and spiritual benefits of time spent in nature.
