Statement on collection of plant material and conservation on AGS tours.
The Alpine Garden Society would like to remind all members travelling on one of the tours organised by AGS Expeditions that the collection of plant material from the wild (plants, bulbs or seeds) is not permitted.
Anyone intending to collect plant material must have secured the relevant permits of the country concerned and informed us before they travel. The AGS is firmly committed to plant conservation and anyone discovered to be collecting plant material illegally will be removed from the tour.
