Grande Ronde Native Plant Reserve

Screenshot 2014-05-15 12.38.14In 1993, former Eastern Oregon University agronomist Andy Huber began acquiring land in the Grande Ronde Valley to create a non-profit native plant reserve. Along with restoring the land and propagating native seeds, Andy’s site is also the only US site where Mountain Lady’s Slipper orchids are grown from seed. Take a virtual tour of this native plant reserve and see three native orchids in bloom.
