Biological Collections and the Stewart Hay Memorial Museum
Inspecting The Bird Collection

The Department of Biological Sciences houses a diverse research collection of specimens from Manitoba and around the world. Our collections are housed in the Stewart Hay Memorial Museum, The Herbarium, and in research and teaching laboratories in the department. The museum space is currently undergoing renovation to better display our collections and to facilitate teaching and outreach activities for the University and the broader community. If you would like to request information regarding our collections, you can contact one of our curators:
