Climate Challenges and the Future of Gardens with Brian Minter

The following program will be presented by the Museum at Campbell River Campbell River Arts Council and the Haig-Brown Institute on October 2 2022 at 2pm.

We’re all experiencing the new realities of our changing climate, from extreme heat and atmospheric rivers to intense winter storms and longer, colder, wet springs. The way we garden and the plants we choose to grow must be adaptable to these new challenges.

As we lose so many pollinators, birds and other critical wildlife, our gardens need to replace lost habitats. We can do this by selecting and growing more pollinator-friendly plants and by creating landscapes that are not only beautiful but are also more functional in terms of wildlife attraction and support.

The importance and relevance of gardens has also changed dramatically as they relate to our own health and well-being.

Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how gardens of the future will function and look.

Co-presented by the Museum at Campbell River, the Campbell River Arts Council, and the Haig-Brown Institute, the Haig-Brown Lecture was created to honour the legacies of Roderick Haig-Brown, who is recognized nationally as a celebrated author and conservationist, and his wife Ann, who leaves a lasting legacy in Campbell River for her service to the community. The lectures provide an annual forum for writers to inspire a new generation with their vision for the environment, social issues and literary excellence.
