Group Description

This forum has been organized and is being run by the Native Orchid Conference, Inc. The purpose of our group is to foster the study, conservation, and enjoyment of native orchids of the United States and Canada.

We request that you restrict your messages to discussions about or requests for information on North American native orchids and restrain from using the site for commercial purposes.

In addition to managing this free site, our group has created a formal, non-profit [501(c)3] organization that is incorporated in North Carolina. We started a quarterly Journal in January of 2004 and have held annual orchid conferences in different areas of North America over the past 14 years.

In this site's Files section is a folder labeled Organizational Information where our By-Laws and a membership application form for the group are available. Another folder in the Files section labeled Past Conference Flyer has programs and promotional brochures from our prior conferences.

Work is well underway for the 2017 Native Orchid Conference. Chaired by Ben Rostron (Ben.Rostron@ualberta.com) it will be held north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada during June 2 – June 5. We have partnered with a local non-profit group, Native Orchid Conservation Inc. (NOCI) for their expertise and will have our meetings at the South Beach Casino and Resort in Scanterbury, MB Our typical format of two days of talks and two days of field trips to see local habitat and native orchids will be followed. If anyone is interested in presenting their work on the study of native orchids is invited to contact Ben to discuss a proposal.

The Files, Photos, Links, and Database areas are used to share information with the membership. Our latest is an orchid "foto flora" (work in progress) that can be reached through the "Related Link" towards the bottom of this page. Because of limited storage space, the Moderator will do all file posting.
