With over 60 activities, the Botanical Conservatory and Gardens of Geneva are renewing and enhancing their programme, offering visitors the chance to discover all the secrets of their living collections and to benefit from the know-how of the scientists working at this open-air museum of biodiversity.
With themed visits, treasure hunts through the living collections and “after-work” events in the form of conversations with the museum’s scientists, the annual programme of the Botanical Conservatory and Gardens is very appealing and includes over 60 activities to discover the world of plants.
In addition to the re-opening of the “#PlanèteVerte missions botaniques” temporary exhibition (6 May to 15 October), this new programme offers the public the chance to meet specialists who are on hand to present their wide-ranging activities and the unique nature of their chosen profession, while focussing on the impressive collections. As an additional treat this year, there will be a Sunday treasure hunt and the “botanical missions after-work event”.
Sunday treasure hunts
Designed as a fun yet educational exploration game, the treasure hunt offers visitors the chance to stroll around the garden, explore the living collections and admire the temporary exhibition with a view to learning more about the institutional activities such as exploration, conservation, research and protection.
“Botanical missions after-work event”
The public can discover a unique means of talking directly to the different stakeholders of the Botanical Conservatory and Gardens of Geneva, focussing on some of the institution’s essential missions. A relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a better understanding of the complex world of plants and the keys to protecting it.
The traditional guided visits will continue, with the Tuesday visits, better known as the “botanical variations”. There are also the “gardener’s visits”, on the first Wednesday of every month, and the “Sunday visits”, on the first Sunday of every month.
Meeting point at the main entrance: Place Albert-Thomas, unless otherwise indicated in the programme.
All the activities are by registration no earlier than one month before (@email or 022.418.51.00)
