Abstract: Welcoming the public is one of the essential missions of the Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques (CJB). The CJB is a living museum of the city, and through its contribution to our international heritage plays a key role in passing on botanical, ethnobotanical, naturalist, environmental and horticultural knowledge. With it’s around 6,000,000 specimens, the collection of the CJB is one of the most important in the world. It is derived from a long tradition of botany in Geneva that dates back to the 1800’s. It contains plants and fungi from the entire world, but in particular, those of the Mediterranean, the Near and Far East, South America and Europe. The Herbarium is not open to the public. However, group visits are organized several times per year, in the framework of public visits. Botanical Garden, renowned for its Botanical Conservatory, also houses magnificent collections of living plants. It is the ideal setting for relaxing or walking as well as for the discovery of our sometimes threatened plant heritage. [Information of the supplier]
