  • This event has passed.

An introduction to the native orchids most often encountered in the mid-Atlantic region, this presentation will discuss how to find, identify, and help protect them. More than four dozen taxa are beautifully illustrated in situ. Seldom seen by the casual observer, the intricate beauty of these often tiny subjects is revealed through the magic of macro-photography.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Saturday, September 10
