On  May 18, 2012, “Plant conservation day” was held as a part of LIFE + Project’s 20th  anniversary in the Botanical garden of University of Latvia.

The public was informed about the EC Life Program and the project, which is being carried out by the University of Latvia.

„Plant conservation day” was attended by more than 600 participants – grownups, students, and families with children.



In addition to many events, exhibitions and nature laboratories, which gave participants a look at the treasures hidden in bogs and mires under the microscope, visitors were able to get EC booklets and various other materials.

Visitors’ enthusiasm for the exhibition was undeniable, and they were particularly interested in seeing the world of the bog under the microscope.
