Welcome to BGCI Russia

Promoting and supporting the work of botanic gardens in Russia

The Russian Department of the International Council of Botanical Gardens for Plant Conservation (now BGCI) was formed in April 1994. It is based in Moscow at the main botanical garden under the auspices of N.V. Tsitsina of the Russian Academy of Sciences. BGCI Russia seeks to support wide participation of the associations of the botanical gardens of the countries of the CIS and other states of Eurasian region in BGCI activities.

BGCI Russia is a public organization and is run independently from the BGCI UK Office.

You can contact Igor Smirnov by email with your news, jobs, or events for botanic gardens in Russia, or for information on BGCI activities, resources and membership.
