The Claude Garton Herbarium is located on the third floor (CB3027) of the Centennial Building at Lakehead University. It was established in 1967 and given the universal herbarium code of LKHD.
The present and future focus is to keep it as a regional herbarium of Northwestern Ontario. However, through exchanges in the past, the Herbarium has specimens from other regions of Canada and many other parts of the world.
The Claude Garton Herbarium is open to the public (call to confirm hours of operation). Erika North is the present curator. Loans of specimens are usually reserved for institutions that are carrying out research such as plant distributions and taxonomic revisions.
