Dalhousie Outdoor Ecolab: Bill Freedman Plant Collection

September 26, 2018 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In celebration of Dalhousie's 200th Anniversary, the Faculty of Science will unveil the Bill Freedman’s Plant Collection, a garden that is part of the Dalhousie Outdoor Ecolab project. The space provides students, faculty and the community with an opportunity to learn and analyze plants and rocks in an outdoor classroom. The garden complements science-based lectures, traditional labs, and existing field courses that would traditionally bring students off campus.

Dr. Freedman was a lifelong naturalist, conservationist and highly respected Environmental Scientist. He taught and conducted research in the Department of Biology and in the School for Resources and Environmental Studies at Dalhousie University. He also served as Chair of the Biology Department; held the George H.S. Campbell Chair in Biology and was appointed an Emeritus Professor upon retirement.
