Sustainable Grounds | Areas of Focus | Climate Change Action Plan | UNB


According to its reputation, UNB maintains its grounds to high standards.

Existing Successes

  • UNB plants approximately 10 trees every year
  • UNB Fredericton has a memorial tree trail, a provincial tree trail and an Acadian tree trail
  • UNB Fredericton has three wildlife-friendly gardens and a medicine wheel garden
  • Both campuses have a community garden on their grounds

By 2025, UNB would like to develop a campus master plan to incorporate the environmental changes anticipated due to increased extreme weather events and temperatures, which also cause new species to thrive in our climate.

Development of a campus master plan

  • Integrate tree planting protocol into Campus Master Plan (FR/SJ)
  • Establish a feasibility study for carbon sinks at UNB (FR/SJ)
