Description: 

VIU Library Special Collections has started working closely with Milner Gardens & Woodland – a property with 60 acres of woodland and 10 acres of garden surrounding a heritage house in Qualicum Beach – in order to piece together and preserve the Veronica & Ray Milner Collection. With the help of a handful of people who knew the Milners personally, we are working together to collect and preserve the history of the land, property, and owners (ca.1930s-1998) so that it can be shared and made more accessible for the 200+ volunteers who work at the Gardens, as well as visitors and researchers further afield.
