Niagara College

Located at the base of the Niagara Escarpment (a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve), the Niagara College Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) campus benefits from its integration into the local native habitat, making it the perfect venue to develop initiatives that protect and enrich the natural environment. The Commercial Beekeeping program (the first in eastern Canada) has been involved in and benefited from past efforts for pollinator protection and its faculty has worked in close cooperation with the Office of Sustainability to ensure that pollinator health is a constant priority. In addition to academic programs, certifications such as Bee Campus and Audubon International’s Cooperative Sanctuary Program encourage the tracking and monitoring of pollinator initiatives on campus; providing a platform for continuous improvement of pollinator health on campus.
