Mar 21 – Jun 9
Climate Change and Trees is an educational exhibit in the Visitor Centre Discovery Room by UBC’s Faculty of Forestry that explores the effects of climate change on some of the tree species found in VanDusen’s collection. The exhibit consists of 19 interpretative panels, each representing a species of tree in the Garden, that explore how those trees are adapting (or not) to the climatic changes occurring in the natural habitats. Admission free.
