The Morgan Arboretum is a 245-hectare (610-acre) forested reserve, situated on the McGill University Macdonald Campus in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue on the western tip of the island of Montreal, in Quebec, Canada. McGill University acquired the property in 1945, and through the work of Robert Watson and his son John Watson, the arboretum has remained a managed, mixed use area which is used for the purpose of conservation, academic study, recreation, and forestry management. It has also been an important recreational facility for the community. It is supported by both McGill and a charity, the Morgan Arboretum Association. There is an active members organisation, The Friends of the Morgan Arboretum which had 2000 members as of 2010. Visitors are welcomed and are charged a nominal $6.00 admission fee for adults. The arboretum is a mixed use, semi-urban forest with an extensive network of walking and skiing trails totalling some 25 km (16 mi). One highly popular activity here is the production of maple syrup using traditional collection and production methods. The public is invited every spring to a traditional sugaring off.
