To advance Humber College's commitment to the Okanagan Charter, new infrastructure is being built on campus to support human and environmental well-being. The Humber Arboretum Trail Project will create a new multi‐use trail that will connect Humber College's North Campus, including the Humber Arboretum, to the West Humber Recreational Trail.

Improved trail conditions will reduce erosion and improve public safety. Native tree and shrub planting will also enhance wildlife habitat and biodiversity on campus. The trail will provide better access for Humber students to natural learning spaces and increased access to health and wellness opportunities in nature for the entire Humber community.

Many thanks to the City of Toronto for funding this project and to Toronto and to Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) for their expertise in trail infrastructure. Thank you also to Humber College's Capital Development and Facilities department for their ongoing operational support for the project.

The project site is located south of Humber College's Residence buildings in the Humber Arboretum. Construction will begin this week and is anticipated to be complete by winter 2019. Restoration planting will begin in fall 2019.
