New Botanical Garden to be the most northerly in Canada.

A new 23 acre botanical garden is being planned for the University of Northern British Columbia with the help of the David Douglas Botanical Garden Society.

“The big dream is to build a full-fledged botanical garden, about 23 acres, to model it after other botanical gardens,” explains Linda Naess, President of the David Douglas Botanical Garden Society. “To have the educational piece of it, the research part of it, a building and events. It’s going to be a big project.”
