    Purpose Of The Plan

    1 Green Infrastructure is an interconnected network of waterways, wetlands, woodlands, wildlife habitats and other natural areas; greenways, parks and other conservation lands; working farms, ranches and forests; and wilderness and other open spaces that support native species, maintain natural ecological processes, sustain air and water resources, and contribute to the health and quality of life for Americas communities and people (Benedict and McMahon, 2006).
