Target species for August-September


The species which we are focussing on in the Coastal Wilderness area, this month.

Native Orchids

Late Winter and Spring are good times to look for ground-growing ("terrestrial") orchids. Their flowering varies, depending on upon spring and Summer rain - and on the rainfall of the previous year. So it may be that our recent dry seasons will mean fewer flowers than usual, but perhaps that's a good reason to search for them!

Many orchids are tiny and most are fragile, so take a camera, take a look, take care where you step... and add your sightings. You may even come across a rare, or previously unreported species! Every sighting recorded will help build knowledge of distribution and flowering times.
