Green Campus Tours

Western's campus has many different sustainability features from beautiful and serene gardens and green space, to an old growth forest patch and the Arboretum that encompasses all campus grounds, a community garden producing food and native plants, LEED® Certified green buildings, sustainable transportation options, waste management initiatives, sustainable food, on-campus energy production, and GHG reduction initiatives. We are committed to enhancing the sustainability of our campus, and would love to show you around these exciting initiatives.
