Conservation at MUN Botanical Garden
Plant conservation is critical to the health of our natural environment, on a global, national and local level. Like botanical gardens world-wide, Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) Botanical Garden is concerned about the loss of biodiversity in the natural habitats of this province. Because of this concern, MUN Botanical Garden continues its efforts to educate the general public about the need to conserve our flora.
Along with education, research is also a vital component to plant conservation. MUN Botanical Garden collaborates with various institutions on conservation projects including the Limestone Barrens ex-situ conservation program for Long's and Fernald's braya and barrens willow.
It is hoped that through education and research, MUN Botanical Garden will continue to create stewardship activities that fosters a greater awareness, and promotes community action in conserving the plant population of Newfoundland and Labrador.
