Plant Conservation Day
Saturday 18 May
Global celebration dedicated to preserving, protecting, and conserving plants for people and the planet.
Plant Conservation Day is a fantastic excuse to celebrate the importance of plants and learn more about the key role we all play in their conservation.
Plant Conservation Day was started in 2001 by the Association of Zoological Horticulture (AZH), and has been actively celebrated by zoos throughout the United States since then. In 2006, Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) partnered with AZH to help expand Plant Conservation Day celebrations to botanic gardens and develop resources to make celebrating easy and fun for any organization, group, or individual interested in conserving the world’s plants.
