Western Australian Native Orchid Study and Conservation Group Incorporated

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 Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.

No part of a Native Orchid can be taken from the bush / native habitat – only Photography and memories. 

Upcoming General Meeting – 15th August 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.
