Why are Orchids so amazing? How about those Pink Lady Slippers at Houdek Dunes Natural Area?
What unique strategy do they use to entice pollinators to fertilize their “slippers” in order to make seeds for the next generation? There may be (hopefully) over a couple thousand blooming at this time at Houdek.
What are some of the strategies other living things use to perpetuate their species far into the future?
Guest orchid specialist Chuck Dickerson will begin this awesome hike with a short introduction about Leelanau Orchids. Join docents Ann McInnis, Bert Thomas, Beth Chiles, and Peter Wolcott for this special Memorial Weekend Houdek hike.
