Orchids as a group tend to grow well in the most unaltered habitats such as ancient woodland and old grasslands and their continued presence can be an indicator that all is still well above and below ground at least in some parts of our changing countryside. Some are able to colonise new habitats and grow well in grass verges and abandoned quarries for examples, so new locations are always possible to find.
A snapshot taken over the next two years will be a valuable "state of the orchid nation" in Bedfordshire that future changes can be measured against. We hope you can help.
Please therefore join us on Wednesday January 30th 2013 at The Mission Hall, Haynes, at 7.30 pm for the project launch, where more details will be provided during a digital presentation outlining the project.
