Though one of the largest plant families, orchids are rarely abundant for a variety of reasons.  Wonderfully adapted, they are hardly the "hot house darlings" many consider them.  In fact many can be found in our busy northeast, several closer than you might suspect.  Join park ranger Dave Taft to learn bout these surprisingly hearty native plants.  Bus Q52, Q53; A Train to Broad Channel.
