School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences
A Living Wall that naturally filters indoor air and provides an interior green space has been installed at the Frost Campus of Fleming College.

Our school is different. There’s no other way to explain it. You’ll get to know other students and faculty by name – from day one. Since our focus is the environment, nature is your classroom. You won’t spend much time pushing a pencil in a lecture hall. You’re more likely to measure a tree, climb one, or study the wildlife that makes the tree their habitat. We are recognized as one of Canada’s leading schools for careers in environmental and natural resource sciences.Active, outdoor, hands-on learningField trips, field schools and applied projectsFaculty who are experts in their fieldsExclusive programs to prepare you for careers in the fast growing environmental sectorMore grads working in these fields than any other college in Canada = strong network for employment opportunities"I decided to attend Fleming College because of this School's incredible reputation. I chose the Ecosystem Management program because of its social approach to the environment – that appeals to me. We look at how we humans fit into the ecosystem and how the ecosystem functions as a whole.  The professors are really interested in what they're teaching and go beyond the requirements – like today, we learned that lichens can eat paint off bridges. Wow! I'm gaining a real sense of  interconnectedness and respect for the environment. The program has exceeded my expectations."Emma KempeSecond year student in Ecosystem ManagementWinner of the prestigious 2006 Garfield Weston Merit Scholarship
