For students interested in botany, here is an opportunity to learn more about trees. An eight-week “Know Your Trees and Plants” programme, to be held at the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens on Saturdays between noon and 1 p.m., will be launched on June 12.
Jointly organised by the Horticulture Department and the Lal Bahadur Mountaineering Institute (LMI), it will start from the office of the Deputy Director of Horticulture in the Lalbagh precincts.
“Lalbagh will receive more than 120 plant species from botanical gardens in Singapore, Malaysia and Pondicherry. It will be our pleasure to tell students about them create awareness about the environment issues,” Lalbagh Deputy Director M. Jagadish said on Thursday after inaugurating the World Environment Day celebrations on the theme of biodiversity.
