The Urban Forest Stewardship Initiative (UFSI) is a partnership of individuals, organizations and governments dedicated to the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of Greater Victoria’s urban forest. UFSI coordinated a large-scale mapping project to determine changes to Greater Victoria’s urban forest over the last 20 years. Viridia coordinated and supported implementation of project components, co-organized public events, conducted research, facilitated information exchange, arranged committee meetings, prepared presentations on the organization for outreach purposes, and conducted research on other urban forest projects around the world to assist with developing and making progress on the overarching aims of this initiative.
