Acadian Forest Seed Bank

It may be cold outside but seeds are still germinating at the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre & Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens.

Propagation Specialist Dr. Robin Browne, Herbarium Curator Ruth Newell and Seed Bank Intern Nicole White are busy conducting viability and germination tests for newly acquired seed.

The seed bank which got underway in 2013, strives to be a centre of excellence for long-term storage of seeds from native plants of the Acadian Forest Region.
