Fleming College Urban Forestry Students Replant Lindsay Golf Club

Lindsay, ON – (Feb. 1, 2023) – Students from Fleming College’s Urban Forestry Technician program are helping the Lindsay Golf and Country Club make its fairway a little greener.

The Lindsay Golf and Country Club’s tree population is predominantly Ash-most of which are infested by the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive species that has significantly impacted urban and forested canopies across Ontario. As a result of the Emerald Ash Borer, many of the golf club’s trees are either dead or dying and need to be removed and replaced.

Twenty-four Fleming students are set to visit the golf club Feb. 2, 2023. These students will be completing a tree inventory for the golf club and creating an urban forest management plan that will help the golf club decide which trees to plant and where those trees should be planted.

The club anticipates planting 20 to 25 trees per year over the next several years.

This project presents an incredible hands-on learning experience for students. It integrates multiple skills students learn throughout their enrolment in the Frost Campus program, including tree identification, measurement and health assessment, data analysis, soil assessment and presentation skills.

It also reflects the real-world work students will be tasked with upon entering the workforce. Urban Forest Management plans are used in most major cities across Canada and throughout the world to improve our green infrastructure, conserve existing trees, plant new trees and improve our towns and cities.

The project is also a great benefit to the Lindsay Golf and Country Club and the Lindsay community. Replacing the infested trees will greatly improve the aesthetics of the golf course and create a much healthier environment in the club’s open spaces.

It is anticipated that this project will be ongoing for several years.

Media are welcome to attend on Feb. 2 to speak with representatives from the golf club and see the work students are doing. For more information, please call James Clark, General Manager of the Lindsay Golf and Country Club at 705-328-2258 ext. 29.

Fleming College’s Bid to Host Ontario’s First Bird Friendly Campus Takes Flight

Lindsay, ON – (Jan. 31, 2023) – Inspired by the Conservation Biology program at Fleming College’s Frost Campus and motivated by an international effort to save native bird populations throughout North America, Fleming’s staff and students are working toward becoming Ontario’s first official bird-friendly college campus.  

It is estimated that up to one million birds die in North America each year due to window collisions, making it one of the leading causes of bird population decline in Canada and around the world. Finding a way to address this issue is a big part of avian conservation.  

With the help of Conservation Biology students, the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences launched a pilot program aimed at bird conservation. That program evolved into the Fleming Bird Conservation Committee (FBCC).   

Composed of students, faculty, and college representatives, the FBCC’s goal is to transform the Frost Campus into Ontario’s first Bird Friendly college campus. While many Canadian universities have embraced becoming bird-friendly campuses, few colleges have followed the same route. 

There is a specific certification process for a bird-friendly designation. Administered through FLAP Canada, it involves threat reduction, habitat generation and the implementation of policy that mitigates harm to birds.  

The FBCC is already hard at work, installing Feather Friendly window protection and protecting and enhancing the natural habitat around Frost Campus.  

That work has already been recognized. In November the Frost Student Association was awarded a plaque from Feather Friendly, recognizing the efforts it and the FCBB have done to make the Frost Campus, Auk’s Lodge Frost’s first bird-friendly building.  

Conservation Biology students have also embarked on a multi-year research project at the campus, with the help of Feather Friendly. Students are currently designing a research program which will monitor the effectiveness of bird-deterrent decals, comparing treated and untreated windows.  

The project will help accomplish the FBCC’s goal of making Frost Campus windows bird friendly, while providing an amazing research opportunity for students.  

The FBCC is also actively involved in conducting education outreach through the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences. It has already hosted two highly successful community public awareness events focusing on what can be done to mitigate bird window collisions.

Happy Holidays from Fleming College!

Peterborough, ON – (Dec. 14, 2022) – Did that voice message say, “Season’s Greetings,” or, “Seasonal Meetings?”  

Were you supposed to bring the Christmas turkey, or your best beef jerky?  

As Fleming College President Maureen Adamson gets ready for the holidays she sends a text message inviting Peterborough musician Kate Suhr to the Sutherland Campus for Fleming’s annual holiday card-but the message gets lost in technical translation, inadvertently starting a real-life, modern-day game of broken telephone! 

But with the spirit of the holidays firmly in place, the Fleming team works together to figure out how to turn a communication mishap into a happy holiday accident.  

Media partners are welcome to share our holiday card with their readers and viewers.  

If you wish to share a copy of the video and are having difficulty downloading it, please contact Communications Officer Sarah Deeth at sarah.deeth@flemingcollege.ca.
