“Orchid Touring in Southern and Central Brazil”
Presented by Steven Gonzalez
“BRASIL 2015 – An Excursion to the Habitat”
Steve will present and talk about a group trip to see orchids “in-situ” in October 2015. In addition to seeing the orchids that grow in the southern states, mainly Rio Grande do Sul, and then in states adjacent to Rio de Janeiro State, Steve will talk about what made the planning of this trip a success. Orchids and other plants were enjoyed in the truly unique ecosystems and landscapes that are found in Brazil.
Steve has been growing orchids for over 30 years, has worked in Puerto Rico Botanical Gardens and Pennock Gardens (like Bachman’s of Puerto Rico), has field traveled in situ in the Caribbean, Central and South America. Steve is a past President of the Orchid Society of Minnesota, is a member of the American Orchid Society and the Orchid Digest.
