Event Details

In October we have a very special Open Evening for you: We are inviting Dr Mark Watson from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Dr Watson knows about the flora of Nepal like no-one else and will give you an introduction to the incredible diversity of plants in this Himalayan country, and what role they play in people's lives. Whether you are a keen botanist or are looking into trekking in Nepal, don't miss this event.

Although Nepal is a small country it boasts a huge diversity of plant species because of its enormous range of habitats. It is home to about 7,000 species of vascular plants, and forms an important biodiversity hot-spot. During our open evening you will hear astounding facts about the plants of Nepal, their uses in daily life and the connections people have with them.

There are several excellent options for holiday treks to botanically and scenically amazing places in Nepal. Dr Mark Watson knows where to go, and after a general introduction to flora in Nepal, you will hear about his trek experiences. There will be time to answer all your questions and for recommendations.
