BENEFITS OF SUSTAINABLE LANDSCAPES

SITES seeks to foster resiliency by encouraging careful design and planning that informs long-term monitoring and adaptive management of the landscape.
The benefits people enjoy from healthy ecosystems are the unobtrusive foundation of daily life.
Healthy ecosystems are the source of the many less tangible—but very real and measurable—benefits that humans derive from a relationship with nature.
Water is a limited resource that is essential to all life, and sustainable landscapes are those that reduce water use, improve filtration, and promote healthy aquatic ecosystems.
