The Conservatory was the first establishment in the world to be entirely devoted to saving plants in danger of extinction. As you stroll along the garden paths and through the glasshouse of this ark devoted to vegetation, you will be taken on a plant voyage during which you will learn the importance of their protection.
• An exceptional environment
The Conservatory is located in the centre of the Vallon du Stang-Alar. This 47 hectare valley snakes along 2 km and includes:
-A 16 ha public park, the perfect place to relax or go walking with the family.
-The Conservatory and the 31 ha of gardens in which endangered plants from five continents, now acclimatised, are combined with collection and ornamental plants in an environment of woods, cliffs and water.
• Growing to save
The Conservatory mainly grows endangered plants from France, Europe and Islands all over the world. Depending on where they come from, these plants are propagated in greenhouses or in the open air and are sent out to other research and conservation organisations and, if possible, reintroduced into their natural environments. As a precaution, the seeds of these species are also kept in cold chambers.
• Protecting plants in their natural environments
Apart from their international programmes, the State has assigned the National Botanical Conservatory of Brest with the mission of ensuring the conservation of the rarest plants in Brittany, Pays de la Loire and Lower Normandy. The botanists' priority is to maintain the species of these three regions in their natural habitat. If the survival of these plants in their natural environment is endangered, they are brought under cultivation and seeds are conserved in cold storage. To date, there are eight National Botanical Conservatories approved by the Ministry of the Environment.
• Making the public aware
The public can visit the Reception Pavilion exhibitions, discover the greenhouses and unique collections of endangered plants and walk along the Botanical Conservatory paths. This will make them more aware of the incredible diversity of the plant world and feel the importance of protecting this heritage for future generations.
