Revisiting Summer: Around Lake Superior in Search of Native Orchids
January 27, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The trip around Lake Superior is well known for rugged scenic beauty on the grandest scale, but there is a much smaller type of beauty hiding in the bogs, forests, rocky cliffs, and dunes of this great lake: native orchids. Join Steve Baker Monday, January 27, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm at Avery Arts & Nature Learning Center – Hessel School House for a presentation on these special flowers. Mr. Baker will provide stunning photos he took of orchids as traveled around Lake Superior. His presentation will include photos of national and provincial parks where he discovered Sparrow’s Egg Ladies Slippers, Purple Fringed Orchids, and Rose Pogonia. His presentation will cover 36 species of orchids and include images of waterfalls, scenic vistas, and the grandeur of Lake Superior.
The program is free of charge. Donations are appreciated.
