About The Event

The richness of a forest is not only in the magnificent creatures that we observe but also in the myriad of vegetation that houses them. A study of the plant kingdom reveals astonishing facts not just about the nature as we see it today, but the origin of life itself. At Beyond Wild, we offer a certificate course in Botany for amateurs, botany enthusiasts as well as botanists, that covers a wide range of topics and is aimed at creating a sense of awareness about the environment. We strongly believe that to conserve the environment, we must love it and this course is a step in that direction. From the origin of the plant kingdom to the taxonomy and identification of the astounding variety of plants we find today, this course covers various aspects of the plant kingdom and plant diversity in the Indian forests as well as urban ecosystems. During the course we organize a number of field visits in and around Pune, with the purpose of observing the plants in their natural habitat, which is the essence of the course.
