The Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Plant Scavenger Hunt lists 25 riddles that challenge you to identify various plant species.  Use the accompanying map to find these plants in Sainte-Anne.  Take a picture of yourself with the plant and post it to the McGill Herbarium Facebook page.  Just to keep you on your toes, some plants bloom in early summer (May/June) and others in late summer (July/August).  So, keep your eyes open, this scavenger hunt could take a whole growing season to complete!

Visit the McGill Herbarium website to find the list of clues and a map.
