Join us for a Campus Beautification Day & Planting Ceremony.

As part of Lakehead University’s Wellness Strategy, we are pleased to offer a Campus Beautification Day & Planting Ceremony: an opportunity for our campus community to come together.

The entire university community, including Lakehead employees and students, is invited to join in planting and pulling weeds, collecting debris, and tidying up our gardens. This is also a fun way to get outdoors for fresh air and connect with others.
