This was an exceptional opportunity to learn more about the underwater / intertidal flora of the Bay of Fundy. In addition to serving as the herbarium’s Director, Dr. Gary Saunders (website) is a research professor at UNB interested in algal evolution, sytematics and biodiversity.

Algae Outing to Mace’s Bay, New Brunswick
A while ago we had the opportunity to visit the herbarium and natural history storage facility for the New Brunswick Museum. I appreciated the chance to observe staff preparing and mounting plants for the herbarium, and to see the scope of their plant collections. In addition, we were shown some fabulous fossils and study skins.
Plant lovers set out into the living world to learn more about New Brunswick plants. This is from a field trip to Kouchibouguac National Park to search for rare plants led by David Mazzerole from the Conservation Data Centre.
