Native Orchid Conference

It’s not too late to register for the Native Orchid Conference, held June 12 – 16 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Run by an organization of the same name, the Native Orchid Conference highlights orchids from the USA and Canada. There are over 200 species of orchids native to North America, from California to Newfoundland, from Miami to Vancouver, and even north of the Arctic Circle. This conference focuses on conservation and restoration of destroyed or damaged habitats. Orchid experts will give talks on topics such as orchid hot spots and conservation case studies. The conference also includes field-trips to nearby state parks to find orchids that survive Wisconsin’s long, cold winters.
