    An exploration of landscape design strategies through a portion of the Musqueam Watershed, where three creeks flow. The project aims to improve stormwater management in order to address downstream flood risk, water pollution and climate change while enhancing habitat. A series of proposed blue-green infrastructure strategies speculate on how to restore natural hydrologic processes to enhance the resilience of the watershed.

    Street food for Bees

    Green rainwater infrastructure sites are small areas of planted municipal land that help urban sprawls deal with excess rainwater. We aim to enhance the green space services they provide by ensuring they have enough plants that are highly beneficial to pollinators. This will be done by developing a statistical tool which can assess the plant distribution in a site.
