    TERRESTRIAL STUDY GROUP

    The Terrestrial Study Group meet once a month, usually on the third weekend following the monthly meeting.  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.

    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.

    Field trips listed as Combined Conservation & Terrestrial Study Group activities are 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.

    COVID-19 restrictions are easing and field trips are beginning to go ahead once again. If you are interested in participating in any of these events you must register with the event organiser and comply with all requirements.
