Lagodekhi photo exhibit
Lagodekhi Reserve is situated in the greater Caucasus range. First established in 1912, it is the oldest protected area not only in Georgia but in the entire region.

To celebrate Lagodekhi’s 100th anniversary the CNF board along with some of our major supporters visited to the park in May 2012. More recently, Georgia’s Parliament hosted a CNF funded  photo-exhibition of some of the park’s most stunning landscapes.

The park is one of the region’s most lush.  Rivers and waterfalls are abundant, flowing from the high mountains into the wooded lower zone, which includes virgin forests of beech and hornbeam. The alpine valleys are home to the chamois and endemic East Caucasian tur and red deer, all of which are listed on the IUCN Red List. We encourage you to visit Lagodekhi in 2013.
