TERRESTRIAL STUDY GROUP

The Terrestrial Study Group meets periodically, usually at least once a month and more often at peak flowering times.  Trips to search for orchids in the wild are organised within the state of Victoria and occasionally interstate. These expeditions may be for one day, a weekend or sometimes longer.

Occasionally the Terrestrial Study Group will combine their activities with other groups where their activities overlap. All members are welcome to join these trips.  Members get the opportunity to walk in the bush, see and photograph orchids in their natural environment, while enjoying the social companionship of fellow orchid lovers.

Thelymitra antennifera

Activities

All orchid related activities and outings are dependent on the orchid flowering time, local events, seasonal conditions and in some cases the availability of a guide.

All field trips, particularly those held during Spring and Summer, will be subject to review dependent upon rainfall and fires etc.

Combined group field trips are often primarily conservation activities but there is a high possibility that you will also encounter a variety of other orchids.

Event details will be confirmed closer to the date so check this page and the current Bulletin to keep abreast of any updates as they become available.  All details regarding the event organiser, requirements, meeting places and times will be printed in the Bulletin in the month prior to the activity.

For further information contact the Terrestrial Study Group Coordinator.

Just because an activity is advertised on this site as going ahead
there may well be limits on the number of members who may attend. Therefore...

You must register with the activity organiser to find out whether you may attend
and to be kept up to date of any last minute changes.
