I want to announce our next Orchids in the Wild trip to Colombia.
The trip runs from arrival in Pereira on November 3, 2018, and ends with departure from Cali on November 18. The trip is led by OCA’s Director Steve Beckendorf and by Colombia’s Sebastian Vieira and Luis Perez.
Steve Beckendorf is one of the OCA’s better kept secrets. Steve has traveled a lot in Colombia in search of several lost species of Odontoglossum. In short, they are no longer lost! Sebastian Vieira is a Colombian biologist with a special interest in Colombia’s microorchids. He has a lot of experience finding orchid rich locations in Colombia. He and several friends are now developing an orchid reserve, La Selva de Ventanas, which will be visited on the trip.
There are only 14 spaces on this trip, so don’t delay sending in your deposit if this trip is a possibility for you.
