Western bee-comes first Canadian university with Bee Campus designation

August 23, 2018

Western University states that it has become the first university to receive the Bee Campus designation from Bee City Canada. “We are looking at more native species and trying to choose plants that have a positive effect for bees and pollinators. We were already doing that anyways, and (our landscape plan) will align quite nicely with the Bee City initiative,” explained Mike Lunau, Western’s Manager of Landscape Services. “This (designation) is a recognition of our commitment to sustainability and us being responsible stewards of the natural environment and the landscape on campus.” Western | CBC
