Green Space

Overview

Western was founded in 1878 and spans over 450 hectares of land. We take pride in our landscape and strive to incorporate sustainability into the maintenance of our green spaces. This includes the protection of natural and wetland areas throughout the campus as well as restoration to the land. For example, plants such as milkweed are left to flower, even in areas where they are not intentionally planted, as they are an important source of food for pollinators.
