Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens

In the Greenhouse

Arthur Irving Academy Scholar Sadie inspired by the Amazon.

“The Arthur Irving Academy Scholarships encourage Acadia students to start actively looking for and participating in research projects much earlier in their career than would normally be the case,” says Dr. Dave Kristie, Director of Research at the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre and Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens.  “And because these scholarship recipients are very good students, our faculty researchers actively seek them out.”
