Since its inception, one of the main goals of MUN Botanical Garden has been the development of different habitats in which the native plants of Newfoundland and Labrador could thrive.
Today, MUN Botanical Garden contains representative examples of almost all of the major natural habitat types of the province. some of these include: spruce and fir forest habitat; deciduous woodland habitat; alder thicket and stream habitat; barrens or heathland; roadside and meadow habitat; as well as bog and fen.
A collection of native plants representing the various habitats are maintained in natural areas throughout the Garden. Some of these plants were collected from the west coast and central regions of the province. They were propagated, and have been planted in as near natural settings as possible.
