Plant Conservation Day (May 18th) is a fantastic excuse to celebrate the importance of plants and learn more about the key role we all play in their conservation.Plant Conservation Day was started in 2001 by the Association of Zoological Horticulture (AZH), and has been actively celebrated by zoos throughout the United States since then. In 2006, Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) partnered with AZH to help expand Plant Conservation Day celebrations to botanic gardens and develop resources to make celebrating easy and fun for any organization, group, or individual interested in conserving the world's plants. These resources are all available at 2008, Plant Conservation Day celebrations were held around the U.S. and in Europe. In 2009, funding from the Boeing Company is allowing BGCI and AZH to work with their membership networks and partners around the world to hold celebrations in more countries and to involve many thousands more people. Boeing employees will also be volunteering at selected botanic gardens to support Plant Conservation Day in Australia, China, Europe, Russia, and the United States. Funding from Boeing has also supported this website, which features easy activities botanic gardens, zoos, and individual organizers can do to celebrate Plant Conservation Day and help conserve the world’s plants
