In KneeDeep Times, Nate Seltenrich reflects on the release of SFEI's latest report:
The same features in urban parks that support biodiversity can also benefit human health. Even biodiversity itself may help us — and the San Francisco Estuary Institute (SFEI) wants to see more of it. To that end, the nonprofit released an innovative report in September called Ecology for Health. It’s a practical guide for planners and designers to aid both biodiversity and human health in urban settings.
The article describes the many ways that the guide seeks to advance our understanding of the intimate connections between people and their natural world. The guide operates on different scales -- urban planning, site design, and detailed design -- to influence the ways that urban spaces enhance biodiversity and support human health.
