In 2019 the opening ceremony of the Gnishik Visitor Center took place, too, which is constructed by the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC), with the support of VivaCell-MTS, World Land Trust and FPWC Board Member Haig Balian. The Center will play an important role in the development of the community, eco-tourism activation, biodiversity conservation and scientific work. It is part of the Caucasus Wildlife Refuge (CWR) and contributes to the development of eco-tourism.
The Visitor Center will also include a library named after Armenian botanist-biologist, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor Eleonora Gabrielyan, whose main focus will be on the flora and related studies. As the community is rich in biodiversity, one of the main goals of the Center will be promoting the study and conservation of the unique species of the Armenian nature in this area, involving the specialists and foreign students, too.
