The North American Orchid Conservation Center (NAOCC) and the United States Botanic Garden have developed the orchid-gami project as a fun activity to raise awareness about the conservation and ecology of our native orchids. These 3D models are a unique way for teachers, parents and children to learn about our native orchids and the challenges they face.
We invite you to try orchid-gami. Click on an orchid thumbnail to download the pdf file, then print, cut and fold! Some of the models are easy and others are challenging and require a bit of tape or glue. Visit the orchid-gami page!
