Speaker:Dr. Jason Downing

Topic: The Million Orchid Project

Date: November 8, 2018


Dr. Jason Downing, Orchid Biologist from the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden will inform us about Fairchild’s project to re-introduce Florida’s rare and endangered native orchids into South Florida’s environments. With the help of thousands of students from local schools, Fairchild has been generating large quantities of these orchid plants from seed. They are now propagating with the goal to reestablish them within South Florida’s public landscapes, around schools, on street trees, and in city parks.

 

The Million Orchid Project is unique in its scale, its exclusive focus on public landscapes, and its involvement of the local community throughout the entire growing process. At its core, The Million Orchid Project is a massive science experiment that allows Fairchild Garden to make important discoveries about how native orchids grow and reproduce. Additionally, the techniques used through The Million Orchid Project may help them develop more general strategies for rescuing rare plants within a highly developed and rapidly
changing urban environment.

The Boca Raton Orchid Society has supported this project for the past
few years.


***Members may bring plants to sell at this meeting. Please note: 10% of your total sales must be donated to the Boca Raton Orchid
Society that night.
