Baltic Botanic Gardens Congress 26-28 maj 2014
The role of botanic gardens in education

Hello, dear Baltic Botanic Garden people,

We want to welcome you all to Uppsala Botanic Gardens May 26-28 2014 for some lovely days mellan hägg och syren  (between the blooming of bird cherry and lilac).

Linné´s Hammarby
We hope for a memorable and rewarding congress with lots of clever tips, interesting talks,
hands on experience, social interaction and prospects for future exchange.

We invite all of us to share with all of us our thoughts and experience on education in botanic gardens, or on other aspects of our work, in the form of posters or oral presentations.

There is no congress fee. We do not yet know whether or not we will be able to cover hotel costs for participants. As soon as we know, we will let you know.

Please respond as soon as possible, even if your registration is preliminary. The final date to register is May 11.
You are welcome with supplementary information to your registration at any time.
