Going for Green


Campus Greening

Approximately 700 spruce, birch, pine, larch, green ash, and apple trees were planted last year to beautify the Thunder Bay campus and to promote a sustainable community. According to Director of Physical Plant Hugh Briggs (BAdmin’06), a healthy tree stores about 13 pounds of carbon annually. Lakehead University is currently working with EarthWise Thunder Bay to develop a community environmental action plan.
