The lively Kumbukkan Oya – famously called KumbukRiver provides a thriving natural habitat for new plants. Our multi-tiered conservation programme includes conservation of genetic plant resources in their natural habitats during the wet seasons. Hundreds of thousands of newborn plants of valuable varieties give life to a green velvet each year.
The natural cycle doesn’t allow these thriving infant plants to cluster together in their thousands, meaning that they will die a natural death. The plant nursery at KumbukRiver takes in young plants of the four varieties potted and ready for replanting. What nature allows are supported in the ‘In-stu’ preservation, as KumbukRiver’s ﬁrst phase of conservation brings up its own natural forest.
