    Good News! Francisco Miranda of Miranda Orchids will be our speaker on Monday May 14. Mr. Miranda is a world renowned taxonomist, but more important he knows where to find beautiful plants in Brazil and take outstanding photos of them….. He will be bringing lots of his beautiful Cattleya among other plants for sale as he specializes in Brazilian species….. come enjoy

    Volunteering places left on the MONITORING ORCHID POPULATIONS PROJECT – Alicante, Spain

    The Monitoring Orchid Populations in the Marina Region (South East Spain) Project invites applications to participate in the volunteering expedition to be held from 30 April-6 May 2012. The purpose of the expedition is monitoring the evolution of the orchid populations in the context of land use change (see http://www.tonibarber.com/orchid/index.htm for details).

    International applications are welcome. Interested parties should send an e-mail to orchidexpedition@gmail.com. The participants will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Applications will be considered until places are filled.

    This ecotour is also particularly interesting to undergraduate and graduate students, who can consider it for their abroad field trips or international coursework/experience. Dates are somehow flexible for groups, which should not exceed 10 people per group (contact us for details or specific needs).
