Lakeland is celebrating a historic gift! Armin and Rita Mueller, owners of Canadian Rangeland Bison and Elk, have donated $4 million to Lakeland. Their donation will be used to purchase land and establish a bison herd at the college, which will be incorporated into the two-year animal science technology program's livestock major. Read more about Armin and Rita, watch them tell the story of their involvement in the bison industry, and watch the philanthropic announcement here!

2020 Top Employer

For the fourth consecutive year, Lakeland has been named one of Alberta's Top 75 Employers

Students in the lead

Nest tunnels
Environmental sciences students in the conservation and restoration ecology, and wildlife and fisheries conservation majors deployed five nest tunnels in wetlands near the college. The tunnels will provide safe, secure nesting places for mallard ducks.


Connecting with industry experts

Agricultural sciences students learned more about connecting with agricultural industry experts around the world with AGvisorPRO.

Alumni spotlight

Joshua Langill, a real estate appraisal and assessment student, was inspired to take the program by his father-in-law, Gordon Petrunik, a Lakeland alumnus. Last semester, that inspiration came full circle when his father-in-law visited campus to speak to his class.
