Shortly after his birth in 1910, George Pegg was brought by his parents from Ontario to western Canada. The family initially settled in the Red Deer area before relocating to the Glenevis area in 1913. Throughout his life, Pegg was a passionate observer of the natural world and developed an uncanny knowledge of the topography, flora, and fauna of his environment. As a young man, Pegg was an avid ornithologist; later in life, he developed a passionate interest in botany. He expressed his interest in flora through his remarkable garden, his herbarium of carefully pressed and dried specimens, and his work identifying Alberta’s plant species. Pegg’s garden contains a unique, eclectic assortment of indigenous and exotic plants, including the bristle cone pine and rare species of hawthorn, poplar, cedar, and juniper.
