At the most easterly edge of North America lies the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Here the narrow Strait of Belle Isle isolates the rugged island of Newfoundland from Labrador, the sparsely populated mainland part of this province. As a come-from-away, the local term for a visitor to Newfoundland, we’ll need a guide to help us explore the island, home to over 40 species of orchids. Gene Herzberg takes us to some of his favorite spots and shares his story about how he first discovered orchids on the island and why they continue to hold his fascination. Visit the island!
