Waterloo Region is rated one of the best urban areas in Canada to increase their percentage of green space thanks to Statistics Canada's first survey of urban green space. Congratulations Waterloo!
The study shows the importance of planting trees, especially in new subdivisions. The study also shows that green space benefits people's health and capturing snowmelt and rain-off, including reducing flood risks.
Let's be like Waterloo and this Spring get involved with your community or an organization in your area that is planting trees. Be part of the ecoMVMNT!
