The Natural and Historic Environment

The natural environment encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally, meaning in this case not artificial. This environment encompasses the interaction of all living species, climate, weather, and natural resources that affect human survival and economic activity.
The historic environment encompasses all aspects of the environment resulting from the interaction between people and places through time, including all surviving physical remains of past human activity, whether visible, buried or submerged, and landscaped and planted or managed flora.
