Orchids of New England

Orchidaceae is one of the largest plant families in the world, and there are 50 orchid species native to New England, from showy lady’s-slipper (Cypripedium reginae) to rose pogonia (Pogonia ophioglossoides). While some species are common, many are of conservation concern. This session provides context for understanding native orchid habitats, diversity, and conservation issues. You will learn identification techniques, pollination strategies, and lifecycle stages for native orchids.
