Friends' organisations and partnerships
The Uppsala Linnaean Gardens are members of a number of networks and collaborate with many different groups and organisations.
We also have two friend associations that support our work - Linnés Vänner and Sällskapet Linnés Hammarby. The Swedish Linnaeus Society protects the heritage of Linnaeus throughout the country.
