The study explored the impact of exurbia within the Lake Simcoe watershed. A comprehensive look at the process of exurbanization and its impact on environment and politics in the area was taken. Drawing on traditions from urban and regional planning, cultural geography, landscape ecology and political ecology, the project considered the governance and land use planning context, landscape analysis including ecology, and analysis of residents' attitudes towards local nature and the global environment.
