About This Event

A guided walk through our orchid range will have you seeing this plant family in a whole new light—literally.

We’ll first take in the subtle changes that nightfall brings to Duke Farms during a twilight walk from the Orientation Center to the Orchid Range. There, we’ll encounter a wide variety of orchids, some of which are most fragrant at night, and explore the incredible diversity to be found in their structure and life history. Are their specialized growing conditions and complex ecological relationships the reason for orchids’ reputation as fragile and fickle plants, or is this simply what happens when a species is displaced from its native habitat?

This program is appropriate for adults. Please dress for the weather. Participants should be prepared to walk over 2 miles on paved trails.

Meet in front of the Farm Barn Orientation Center for check-in. We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the start of class. We cannot accommodate late arrivals and the class will depart on time.
