How it All Began: The Bloedel Conservatory

John Coupar, son of Charles Coupar the Bloedel Conservatory’s first Garden Director, will share the story of the Conservatory. From its envisioning in 1966 to celebrate Canada’s approaching 1967 Centennial, to the building of the iconic triodetic dome which houses a very large collection of unique tropical plant species and rare birds, the Conservatory is a unique asset to Vancouver. In retelling its story, Coupar will also look at the broadly supported efforts to save it from demolition and the recently completed restoration.
