As we welcome the changing of the seasons we are also welcoming back Acadia students to campus. The Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens are open to Acadia students only this fall and remain closed to the public.
Our emblem featuring Scotch thistle, mayflower and a honeybee
The mayflower was Harriet Lila Irving's favourite wildflower. The honeybee symbolizes hard work and pollination. The Scotch thistle represents Scotland, the Irving family's ancestral home.
