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.

All field trips, particularly those held during Spring and Summer, will be subject to review dependent upon rainfall and fires etc.  Check back at this web site and refer to the monthly Bulletin to keep abreast of any updates as they become available.
