The purpose of the Native Orchid Conference is to foster the study, conservation and enjoyment of the native orchids of the United States and Canada. Membership is open to anyone who is interested in wild orchids. Our membership has a wide range of experience and includes both scientists and hobbyists.
The NOC as well as its individual members participate in numerous scientific, educational and conservation efforts across the continent.
The Fred Case Grant Fund offers support for research projects related to native orchid conservation. To learn more CLICK HERE.
Hundreds enjoy the free on-line forum and many attend the annual symposiums. Paid membership includes the NOC Journal, an impressive periodic publication that features a wide range of related articles. Many new friendships and professional relationships have resulted from participation in the NOC.
