The Botanical Garden is situated in the north-eastern part of Yerevan, occupying the territory of 80 hectares. We are opening a workcamp here for the 12th time already. The Botanical Garden of the National Academy of Science is responsible for plant collections in Armenia. It holds rich herbarium of different species and shrubs. The collection of Armenian flora includes around 200 species and provides a basis for its study, and the ecological interactions of species, in a relatively natural environment. Armenia is called an open-air museum. You will have lots of interesting excursions and visits to historical monuments and museums, which will be organized during the workcamp.
