…the Niagara College (NC) School of Environment and Horticulture Studies, located at the 125-acre Niagara-on the-Lake (NOTL) campus, acts as a living lab for students. Located at the base of the Niagara Escarpment, the NOTL campus features Ontario’s largest training greenhouse, newly renovated landscape design studio and computer lab; a heated landscape workshop; 15 acres of student-restored wetlands; and is Canada’s first nationally recognized post-secondary wildlife sanctuary.
With students responsible for maintenance of the campus landscape, the School of Environment and Horticulture Studies focuses strongly on applied, hands-on learning experiences on campus and via co-op placements and work terms in addition to applied research projects. Programs are taught by expert faculty and developed to meet industry demand.
