Plants along Creek given ‘name cards’

Want to know the names of various plants along the Suzhou Creek? Nameplates will now help.

More than 130 nameplates were attached to plants along the Suzhou Creek yesterday morning, with 42 varieties of trees as the first batch.

Each nameplate bears a unique QR code.

By scanning the QR code, people can learn the features and growing conditions of these plants and see photos taken in different seasons.

Their Latin names will also be shown.

“A large number of new plants have been planted along the Suzhou Creek, and the ‘name cards’ will help residents and tourists learn about these plants and nature,” said Zhu Xinjun, chief engineer at the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau.

“In the future, the area along the Suzhou Creek will be turned into a ‘plant science popularization belt’ to enrich the cultural and science connotation of the city’s public areas,” said Zhu.

“We plan to extend the plant science popularization to all public spaces along the Suzhou Creek and the Huangpu River.”

Ten science popularization booths were set up in Changfeng area of Putuo District yesterday as part of the ongoing 7th Shanghai International Nature Conservation Festival.

Residents were invited to interactive activities to experience the city’s biodiversity.

Various events are held at city parks to mark the festival, including a butterfly exhibition at Shanghai Zoo, a chrysanthemum exhibition at Gongqing Forest Park, wetland-related activities at Chenshan Botanical Garden, horticulture lectures at Luxun Park and Changfeng Park, and trash picking and a lecture on marine debris at Dongtan Natural Reserve.
