The Botanical Garden calendar for 2017-2018 is celebrating Israel’s 70 years of independence.  About 40 plant species bear the name "Israel" in their Hebrew name, of which twelve beautiful ones have been chosen for the calendar, all of which grow in the TAU Botanical Garden. These plants bear the name of the country either because they were first classified in Israel, or because they are endemic to Israel and its immediate surroundings. Some of these species are considered endangered and are on the verge of extinction.

The calendars will be available from the Garden’s office from September.
