Perched at the intersection of Europe and Asia, the Armenian highlands are home to a diverse range of ecosystems and species, and dramatic topography ranging from 400 to 5,000 meters above sea level. Trails course through deep woods and grassy plains, over fields of wildflowers and along bubbling springs and rivers. Desert steppes ascend to alpine meadows with spring-fed lakes, and a growing number of protected nature areas work to protect these natural treasures, with mountainous treks that feature annual bird migrations, rare species of wild fauna, or historic ruins from previous civilizations.

These experiences represent individuals and organizations who have benefited from support from My Armenia-led training activities.
