Hardy Orchid Society Conservation Grant

| Helen Dignum

The Hardy Orchid Societys support the safeguarding of wild orchid populations and the preservation of wild habitats for the benefit of present and future generations. The new Hardy Orchid Society Conservation Grants aim to encourage communities to incorporate orchid conservation work into their environmental initiatives by contributing a small sum to help protect and enhance wild orchids and their habitats.

The 2023 HOSCG funding round is open now and details are available here. The closing date is 28 February 2023.
For 2022 the grant went to Monkton Nature Reserve (Thanet Countryside Trust) to provide orchid protection by installing rabbit-proof enclosures combined with trialled use of various environmentally-friendly, non-lethal repellents. In addition, visitor awareness of orchids will be enhanced by the installation of an information board.
