Abstract

Our understanding of the benefits from urban nature has expanded considerably in the last decade, including the benefits of green infrastructure for managing stormwater and air pollution and for physical and mental health. However, an already difficult environment for natural systems is likely to be exacerbated by climate change. A lunch discussion at the 2017 Portland-Vancouver Urban Ecosystem Research Consortium symposium showed considerable interest in the topic from diverse stakeholders. In this poster, we describe our survey which aims to determine to what extent both the regional conservation strategy and concerns about climate change are influencing local organizational activities and decisions. We further aim to identify gaps and overlapping areas of interest on this topic as well as innovative practices which we plan to share along with our overall findings at a stakeholder meeting later this year.
