ForestrySA is supporting the Native Orchid Society of South Australia (NOSSA) and Wild Orchid Watch (WOW) in hosting two community education workshops to increase knowledge and identification of native orchids.
Wild Orchid Watch is a citizen science project designed to help people learn about our native orchids as well as provide valuable information to researchers and land managers.

TIME: Session 1: 1000-1200
TIME: Session 2: 1300-1500
