Current LEAD Project
Miyawaki Method Mini-Forest, North Campus
At this site, we hope to transform a degraded area overgrown by non-native plants back into a forest characteristic of the Coastal Western Hemlock biogeoclimatic zone.
What is L.E.A.D.?
Learning Environment Action Discovery (LEAD) is a student run restoration program in the College of the Environment. LEAD has been around for over 25 years, and is directed by graduate students in the Environmental Studies department.
What does L.E.A.D. do?
LEAD seeks to improve habitat in and around the WWU campus to provide ecological, social, and educational benefits to our community. We run regular restoration work parties, provide internship and experiential learning opportunities, collaborate with other environmental organizations, and teach a 2-credit restoration seminar in the Urban & Environmental Policy and Planning (UEPP) department.
