Niagara College

Niagara College showed off it’s environmentally-friendly nature Sept. 15 when the student-led Niagara Environmental Corps, hosted the college’s fourth annual Green Day at Niagara College.

 

The event at the Glendale campus courtyard featured displays by local environmental, conservation and nature groups of which Earthgen attended.

This is a video made by students at Niagara College showing some of the great work we are doing with them to restore land back to its original state.

Take a look and see what we have done with them!

It might seem like a no brainer, but you would be surprised how many people plant their trees improperly! These future growers won't make that mistake,
