Science in Nature: Minnesota’s Native Orchids – Where to find them and why they grow here

June 16, 2023

Are you curious about how nature functions? Uncover the mysteries of nature! Join scientists and researchers as we explore their discoveries. Minnesota has several native orchid species, and you even probably know at least one of them (hint – it’s the state flower). They grow all over the state and we’ll talk about some of the fascinating biology of this interesting plant and where you can find them. We’ll even take a quick hike outside to see some that will likely be blooming. Guest will be David Remucal, curator of endangered plants with the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. This program from 11 a.m to noon Friday, June 16 at Forest Inn (across from Douglas Lodge) is coordinated by the University of Minnesota’s Itasca Biological Station and Itasca State Park.
