Our Mission

The Alberta Botanical Society strives to foster stewardship of Alberta's ecosystems through community outreach and public education.

We take a multi-disciplinary approach and are willing to collaborate with other organizations, universities, governments, industry, and individuals to make this vision a reality.

We aim to incorporate a diverse range of plant-related disciplines and interests into our approach including botany, ecology, genetics, agriculture, forestry, land reclamation, horticulture, landscaping, and gardening.

We are and always will be an inclusive community that welcomes people of all backgrounds.
