Join us for the 3rd in the SBTH Speakers Series to hear orchid enthusiast Chuck Dickerson and his wife, Janet, who have been observing, photographing and nurturing native orchids in Leelanau County for more than 20 years. Of the more than 30,000 orchids in the world, at least 35 call the Grand Traverse Area home. Chuck will discuss which orchids can be found in our area, which are decreasing in numbers and which are increasing. One species, not previously reported here before 2010, is now present in good numbers near the shore of Lake Leelanau.
