Prince George, Science, Nature or Animals

Goodsir Nature Park is a well kept secret in Prince George. So well kept, in fact, that many residents have not even heard of it. What a shame. For those who have an interest in botany, the collection of over 200 trees native to climates across Canada are a delight to see while walking through the extensive and quiet trails of the property. Many intriguing smaller plants are also to be found along the trails, from rare orchids to arid cacti to arctic flora. With camping spots available by donation, a beautiful beaver pond, and a botanical museum filled with 50 years of collecting by the creator of this beautiful jewel north of the city. If you have an affinity for your leafy friends, take a trip out or visit Prince George's visitor information centre for more information. You will not be disappointed.
