Natural Resources

The Greenbelt’s natural and “Forever Wild” areas support rare habitats such as wetlands, forests, woodlands, meadows, and native rare plant species.  They are accessible through our extensive trail system located in an urban setting. Read more about how this precious resource is managed and cared for.
