The Wild Orchids of Ozaukee and Washington Counties

May 17, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

in partnership with the Friends of Cedarburg Bog

Showy and yellow ladyslippers, ladies’ tresses, and fringed orchids are just a few of the many rarities  native to Washington and Ozaukee Counties.  Join Kate Redmond and Melissa Curran as they highlight not only the local status of our wild orchids but also share with us the intricately complex natural life history of these marvels of the wild flower world as well as present new scientific developments in areas pertaining to the restoration of our temperate zone orchids. Well known master naturalist and wild orchid fancier, Kate Redmond, will discuss the status and distribution of orchids native to our area; and botanist and orchid specialist, Melissa Curran, will share with us the exciting cutting edge research on orchid restoration in progress at the Ridges Sanctuary in Door County.  Dr. Jim Reinartz, plant ecologist and Director of the University of Wisconsin Field Station at the Cedarburg Bog, will introduce the program.
