The Arboretum, Bergen Botanical Garden and the Museum Garden have large, valuable, and irreplaceable plant collections of great international importance. In the University Gardens, we have a unique genetic plant material that is important to safeguard as best as possible for academic, research and conservation reasons. Many of the plants are extremely rare, and some are globally threatened with extinction.

The weather is nice and it's tempting to have a barbecue, but the high risk of fire makes it too dangerous now.
