Lakehead opens Climate Action Park


Lakehead University has opened the Climate Action Park, a co-designed space that aims to restore aquatic habitat and improve stormwater management along the McIntyre River. Other objectives of the park include raising awareness of the climate crisis, contributing to climate change adaptation efforts, and creating a space for connection and learning. Lakehead Sustainability Coordinator Devon Lee stated that the university engaged with stakeholders such as students, staff, and respected Elders on the development of the park. “The climate crisis compels us to work together for change in the places where we live, work, and study, and this project is an excellent example of collaborative climate action,” said Lee.
