2017 Field Trips and Tours

Field Trip and Tour Registration is now CLOSED.

Conference participants will have access to the Botanical Garden (greenhouses and the exterior gardens) but not to the Insectarium, nor the Biodôme or Planétarium. There are many things to explore in the area if you should be able to extend your visit to Montreal!

Lunchtime Ethnobotany Walks (Thursday and Friday)

On Thursday, join ethnobotanist Saskia Wolsak (UBC Department of Anthropology), or on Friday join Tara Moreau (UBC Botanical Garden) and Vanessa Campbell (Musqueam Language and Culture) for lunch-time plant walks around the botanically diverse UBC Campus. Areas visited may include the arboretum, Asian gardens, the Beaty Biodiversity Research Centre’s native plant courtyard, as well as gorgeous native forests and nearby beaches. Meet at 12:15 (after the morning sessions) outside the First Nations House of Learning (no need to register). Bring your own picnic lunch.  Check out places to buy your lunch: http://www.food.ubc.ca/places-to-eat/
