After more than 25 years with our Faculty, UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research was officially moved to the Faculty of Science in April 2011.
The transfer creates a cluster of biodiversity and natural history related attractions within the Faculty of Science, which is already home to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and the Pacific Museum of the Earth.
“This move presents great opportunities for UBC Botanical Garden,” said Murray B. Isman, Dean, Faculty of Land and Food Systems. “By aligning with the Faculty of Science, and specifically the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, UBC Botanical Garden will be able to further advance its biodiversity education and research programs.”
