Senior Botanist Dennis Whigham will describe efforts to conserve native orchids in the U.S. and Canada through the development of the North American Orchid Conservation Center (NAOCC). NAOCC is based on ecological principles and the participation of community scientists in the collection of the genetic diversity of native orchids and the mycorrhizal fungi that are essential for their survival. Join us for an overview of orchid ecology and NAOCC, including ongoing outreach and educational efforts.
