Four seedlings grown from the acorn of the Petrovsky oak, a tree – a monument of wildlife, were handed over as part of the All-Russian Oak Forest of Emperor Peter the Great Program.

The chief curator of the gardens of the Russian Museum Alexandra Alekseeva presented the seedlings to Olga Sorokina, senior lecturer at the Department of Architectural Design of the Institute of Architecture and Design. In the near future, oak trees will be planted near the walls of the university in the city of Krasnoyarsk. The program was attended by a representative of the Service for Consultative and Methodological Interaction with Museums.

Planting seedlings from the oak of Peter the Great is very symbolic, it is an invaluable contribution to the preservation of the historical and cultural heritage and a valuable historical natural gene pool.
