Learn about the orchids on Cape Cod, their meticulous pollination methods and the threats to their fragile habitats.

You don't have to own a humid greenhouse to see orchids in bloom on Cape Cod. While all wildflower lovers are familiar with the beautiful Pink Lady's Slipper orchid there are actually more than 25 wild orchids that can be found on Cape and the Islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. However with the exception of the lady's slipper all are rare and mostly confined to specialized habitats.

Mr. Eldred is a reporter for the Cape Codder where he covers environmental issues and the town of Brewster, he is also currently President of the Botanical Club of Cape Cod and the Islands and a member of the New England Botanical Club. He has a degree in Botany from the University of New Hampshire and a master's in Plant Science from the University of Western Ontario.
