Natural capital refers to stock of natural resources and environmental assets and how they contribute to building healthy communities. The Natural Capital perspective tries to quantify the wide range of benefits that are provided by these natural resources and environmental assets for free.

If you are interested in volunteering or attending these events contact Kristina at 647-346-8744 or email@example.com.
