CONSERVATION GROUP

The Conservation Group is highly active with activities planned throughout the year.  Activities are more loosely organised than the other groups due to the nature of conservation work.  Monitoring normally needs to be carried out at the peak of the flowering season, not necessarily when it is convenient for members.  Likewise weed management should be carried out at the optimum time of year to be most effective.

All members are welcome to join our conservation activities, however some activities are limited to the number we can have on site.  This is to protect the orchids from potential trampling.  Other activities such as searching for rare and endangered orchids usually require as many members as possible to increase our chances of finding them.

Our conservation activities involve monitoring, searching, site management, weed management, translocation and propagation.  Our emphasis is always on managing the orchid sites to help maintain their natural environment.

Our activities are conducted in close association with the relevant management authorities such as the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP), Parks Victoria and Local Councils. Working with these authorities helps foster good relationships between Government and volunteers as well as ensuring that we do our best for the orchids.

Many of our projects are funded by government grants.

Leptoceras menzesii

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.

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 Conservation Group Coordinator.
