Joint field trip to Corsica

Between the 23rd and the 27th September ten partners from the project will meet in Corsica. They will visit different localities all around the Island with the aim to exchange botanical knowledge, to do seed collecting and to know directly about several experiences of flora and habitat conservation and restoration. Also they will visit some producers of plants that are using seeds collected in the framework of this project.

As previous joint field trips this one would be a great opportunity to increase the knowledge of all partners about the flora of Corsica, to know about the work the “Conservatoire Botanique National de la Corse” is carrying out and to build stronger links between partners.
