At the Museum at Campbell River, winding paths lead through gardens containing 80 different species of plants native to the region. Many plants recognized and named by First Nations groups were harvested and used for food, medicine or traditional technology.
Illustrated signage accompanies 30 of the plants in the garden, giving their names in English, Latin and three aboriginal languages, with information about their harvesting, preparation and use. Some examples are shown here.
The succession of blooming times and subtle variety of flowers, fruit and foliage offers interest throughout the year, perfect for a garden stroll in any season.
