When I think about the effects of urban sprawl on nature, I always think of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" with the lines "Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got Till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot." We need to redevelop older urban areas for homes and businesses; we need to keep rural areas for conservation or agriculture. Ironically over a hundred years ago Captain Cootes believed that Cootes Paradise was being destroyed due to urban sprawl. He believed that paradise was being lost. How Miltonian of him.
