Donated by the Irving family, the Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens occupy more than six acres and provide a meeting place for science and nature on the campus of Acadia University.

The main collection of the gardens is laid out in nine native habitats of the Acadian Forest Region. All of the plants found in these habitats are native species to the region. Other features of the gardens include a medicinal and food garden, conservatory, formal walled garden and an experimental garden.
