Field Trips

Field trips are an important part of the activities of WANOSCG.  Most members undertake numerous personal field trips throughout the year. In addition, six or more club organised group field trips are undertaken annually.

Group field trips provide members with an opportunity to visit areas, to find and photograph orchids they have not seen before and to learn about orchids from each other. Factors determining the areas visited include; the location of summer fires, winter rainfall patterns, information received from country members, requests from members and specialist trips to search for threatened orchid species.

Orchid flowering is not confined to the spring months and the first trips are usually held in April / May. Members are encouraged to contribute information on the number and location of orchids found to the club’s database.

Upcoming Field Trips – 2017

To register your interest to attend a Field Trip, please speak with the Field Trip Leader (FTL). Please note that there are attendee restrictions for trips to minimise harm to the Orchid habitat.
