Saving our Native Orchids - what YOU can do 

DON'T PICK - picking orchid flowers destroys vitally important seeds. 

                             and can also damage or kill the plant preventing future flowers and seeds.

DON'T DIG - wild orchid plants rarely survive transplanting so don't dig up wild orchids and try to move them

                          unless they are going to be destroyed otherwise.


DON'T TRAMPLE- give orchids their space. Careless feet can compact the soil around an orchid or colony of orchids,

                                        suffocating the roots while trampling seedlings and non-blooming plants you don't even notice.


Washington State's Native Orchids - WA is home to more than 30 orchid species including Fairy Slipper, Phantom Orchid, Frog Orchid, Coralroots, Lady's Slippers, Stream Orchid, Broad-leaved Helleborine, Rattlesnake Plantain, Twayblades, Piperias, Bog-Orchids, Rein-Orchids, Ladies' Tresses.  All of them are worth saving!
