 Scientists from the Canadian Museum of Nature have been documenting plants in the Canadian Arctic for over 100 years. Join us for this talk with Paul Sokoloff – frequently found digging up and pressing specimens in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories – who will cover the past and present of Arctic plant research at the Canadian Museum of Nature, including ongoing research and the links between these studies and your own gardens.

This presentation will be a Webinar
