A brief description of the institution’s third party certified land holdings:

Lane's grounds have been certified as wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. We are committed to providing the elements needed for wildlife to thrive: food, water, cover, and places to raise young.Lane's gardens are self-sustaining landscapes requiring very little water once established and do not require fertilization and are chemical free.
This strategy relies on leaving the majority of leaf litter in place to decompose and provide self-fertilization.

The Institute for Sustainable Practices committed to get Lane Community College certified as the 5th Bee Campus in the state of Oregon through the Xerce's Society and Bee City USA. We have been working on this certification since Fall 2018 and were awarded the certificate in May 2019
