Presentation Abstract

The City Habitats Network connects over 100 partner organizations and entities involved in the work or urban ecosystem restoration with a particular interest in green infrastructure and stormwater. By focusing on coordination of partners, collaborative approaches, and meeting communities where they are, City Habitats is accelerating and amplifying efforts from across the Salish Sea and turning the tide on polluted stormwater. This presentation will highlight the overall strategies of City Habitats and examples of our collective impacts across regional and economic sector lines. As a coalition of partners involved in urban restoration, City Habitats is intentionally centering racial and social equity in the positive impact work that this network does.
