About this Event

In late summer of 2017, CRAGS member Yaro Horachek joined his Czech friends Mojmír Pavelka and Vladimír Staněk on a seed collecting trip to Tian Shan and Pamir mountains in Kyrgyzstan. They spent three weeks there, circling the small very mountainous central Asian country in a Toyota 4Runner. They were driving, camping and collecting both seeds and live plants at elevations ranging from under 1800 m around Lake Issyk Kul to 3460 m at Pereval Kalmakashu, and drinking glacier water at some 4000 m above Barskoon Pass. Yaro returned with seeds of 85 species and an experience he hopes to repeat with Mojmír and Vladimír in Turkey or Iran or anywhere they choose. On April 8th Yaro will share his memories of Kyrgyzstan with you, and show some of the wonderful hardy plants encountered.
