Nature NB Festival of Nature 2022

The Festival of Nature is taking place in Fredericton this year, and we (UNB Herbarium) are taking part by opening our doors for a tour on Saturday June 4!

Tour of the Connell Memorial Herbarium in the Biology Department at UNB — The Herbarium is a collection of preserved botanical specimens dating from 1834 to present. The specimens were collected all across New Brunswick, with some from other parts of Canada and the world. It is a valuable resource in many scientific disciplines and touches on history and art as well. During the tour, participants will have an opportunity to explore the herbarium, use keys to identify common plants, and learn how to prepare botanical specimens for science or art.

See you then!
