Orchid Encounters in Arkansas
line.gif - 0.64 K

I live on 25 acres of forest and small glades in northwest Arkansas. It is about a half hour walk to the Buffalo River. Between my house and the river I have located 14 species of wild orchids. I expect to increase this number as I explore further.

These are the species I have found so far.
