Wetlands + naturalization
  • Calgary Parks has introduced a naturalization initiative to bring ecological and aesthetic diversity of landscapes into public green spaces (City of Calgary 2015)
  • 818 created an illustrated document to use as the basis for understanding, analysing, planning, designing, implementing, and maintaining a naturalized landscape
  • 818 created a sample design project along Memorial Drive as a way of demonstrating the design and site analysis techniques we had outlined
  • this document is for anyone in Calgary who may have identified a public space or park that is in need of renovation, and for communities who are interested in working with The City to create a healthy, ecologically diverse, and low- maintenance park or open space
