Street Nature Score (in Beta)

This new website: Street Nature Score (designed in Beta for San Francisco and Seattle) rates neighborhoods by their access to nature just like the Walk Score rated areas by the amenities that were within walking distance.

"Street Nature Score is brought to you by sustainable design strategist and educator Jeremy Faludi, of Faludi Design.  By measuring urban nature, and making its benefits clear, we can help individuals, realtors, developers, and planners make cities more sustainable while also making them nicer places to live."

Check out the website to learn more about why "street nature" is valuable.
