Rare & Medicinal Plantation Program

    The Plantation Program of rare and medicinal plants in urban and semi urban areas in the state was also initiated in the year 1997. As part of this program many rare species like Red Sanders, Bijasal, Sandalwood, etc. have been planted in districts of Khurda, Puri and Cuttack. A medicinal plants garden set up by Wild Orissa in Bhubaneswar’s premier B. J. B College campus is also one of the show pieces for the capital city. Such plantations would help in the long run in rehabilitation of rare and vanishing species of our flora.
