Wild Orchids of Indiana, IFWOA Webinar

Join Indiana Forestry & Woodland Owners Association (IFWOA) on this Zoom webinar as we learn from Mike Homoya about Wild Orchids in Indiana. Orchids occur on all continents save for Antarctica, and the orchid family is considered by many to have the greatest number of species of all plant families in the world. To the surprise of many there are 45 naturally occurring species in Indiana. This presentation will look at a selection of them and discuss their floral characteristics as well as range, habitat, and blooming seasons.

Presenter Michael Homoya served as Botanist/Plant Ecologist for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Nature Preserves for 37 years before retiring in 2019. He has written over 75 scientific papers, popular articles, and books about Indiana’s natural features, including Orchids of Indiana, Wildflowers and Ferns of Indiana Forests: A Field Guide, Wake Up, Woods, and Wildflowers of the Midwest. Homoya is a Fellow and former president of the Indiana Academy of Science and the Indiana Native Plant Society.
