Western Australian Native Orchid Study and Conservation Group

WANOSCG and its Members have been enjoying Western Australian native orchids for over 40 years – by promoting the study and conservation of these unique and wonderful flora.
Please note that all flora that is native to Western Australia is protected throughout the State under the Wildlife Conservation Act 1950.

Upcoming General Meeting – 20th June 2018 7:30PM – Kings Park Administration Buildings, Perth

We are a group of people from diverse backgrounds who share the love of Western Australia’s native orchids and their outstanding diversity.
In addition to gaining satisfaction and increased knowledge from the study of these fascinating plants in their natural environment, we aim to promote interest in their conservation for the benefit of future generations.
Photographing native orchids in their native habitat is a shared common passion.

No part of an orchid can be taken from the bush / natural habitat – only photography & memories. Please also respect your footprint in the area as well
