Our Virtual Garden Presentation Tours continue on Thursday, July 29th with a presentation tour of MUN Botanical Garden with guest presenter, Todd Boland, B.Sc., M.Sc. Horticulturist. (Our list of gardens and guest presenters for the first series of virtual presentations is listed below.)

MUN Boranical Garden, Newfoundland  and Labrador

Guest Presenter: Todd Boland, B.Sc., M.Sc. Horticulturist


Located in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Memorial University of Newfoundland Botanical Garden is the province’s premier botanical garden.

A place to explore and play, the MUN Botanical Garden has cultivated gardens and meandering trails nestled in our spectacular boreal forest. You’ll discover beautiful displays of native and exotic plants, perennial and vegetable gardens, with a few surprises along the way!

Explore five breathtaking trails that wander through trees, waterways, wetlands and scenic vistas. Be immersed in nature with over 250 species of vascular plants, 120 species of birds and 26 species of butterflies.

Devoted to RESEARCH and EDUCATION, the Garden has been developed to display plants native to the province and cultivated plants suitable to the local climate and to provide access to a number of habitats through a system of trails.

The Garden is a not-for-profit charity as part of the university’s inclusive community, which creates and inspires understanding, appreciation, and conservation of plants in gardens and natural areas to further Memorial’s mission of research, education and engagement.
