Glover Greenhouse Facility

March 5

Mystic Vale tree walk

Researchers from the Centre for Forest Biology lead a spring walk through Mystic Vale, sharing the power of plants. Learn about the Indian plum tree, the knees of Douglas firs and the burls of big-leaf maples. Discover the raphide crystals of skunk cabbage, and how red cedar and sword ferns use water efficiently.

This informative walk starts and ends at the Bev Glover Greenhouse in Parking Lot #1. Participants should be aware that the trail can be uneven and muddy at times. Dress for the outdoors!
