Web Site
Notice of errors and other feedback is appreciated. Please send it to nswildflora@yahoo.ca (copy and paste the e-mail address).

Our first web site was hosted at www.chebucto.ns.ca/~nswfs and maintained by the late Jean Sawyer. Hosting of the current site under the domain name nswildflora.ca began Oct. 7, 2007. David Patriquin redesigned the web site in consultation with Heather Drope and Anne Mills. On Sep 12, 2017, that site was archived, and a new website on the WordPress platform was initiated. David Patriquin is the webmaster. The WordPress format will allow more people to be involved in adding and updating content.
