Field camp is part of Ecological Restoration, a joint diploma/degree program in partnership with Trent University.

Canada’s environmental movement began to take shape in the early '70s. Environment Canada, World Wildlife Fund Canada, Greenpeace, the first Faculty of Environmental Studies (York U) and Alternatives Journal were all founded between 1967 and 1971. Roughly 30 years later,A\J produced its first Directory of Canadian Environmental Studies Programs.

What makes the study of environment unique is its multidisciplinary nature. For our first directory, we sought only those programs that integrated both scientific and social perspectives into environmental issues. 

Today, this is a definitive standard in every environmental college and university program. And the result is a world that is more environmentally literate. Well over 100 educational institutions in Canada offer environmental study and training.

We asked Linda Skilton, Dean of Fleming College’s School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences (SENRS) and past chair of the Canadian College and University Environmental Network, to take us through the evolution of environmental education as it happened in one of Canada’s leading environmental colleges.
