Our mission & history

Our Mission

The AUB Botanic Garden has a three-pronged mission that will guide its work for the coming years.

 

First, it is committed to the conservation of the living environment that makes up a large proportion of the AUB campus.

 

Second, it seeks to educate members of the community, both within and outside of AUB, about the natural environment with which we co-exist and the importance of preserving this environment for future generations.

 

Third, it aims to increase the appreciation of the campus as a sanctuary for living things and to serve as a model for a sustainable relationship between people and nature.
