The Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens on the campus of Acadia University have provided a stimulating natural environment for the study and viewing of native flora of the Acadian Forest Region since September 2002; a place for the fusion of science and nature. Occupying more than 6 acres, the Botanical Gardens feature the plants of nine habitats of this Region, along with a formal Walled Garden and classic Herbaceous Bank. Other features include Experimental Gardens, a brook, carved sandstone lily pools, a quiet stone wall, and a pleached hedge set adjacent to the restrained Georgian classicism of the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre architecture.
