Update to Small Whorled Pogonia Orchid Discovery

After the initial discovery this summer of Isotria medeoloides in Orange County, a follow-up survey was done this week and almost 100 more plants were counted.  That is an encouraging sign that the plant is doing well and may be in other areas. The New York Natural Heritage Program is planning to evaluate and  search additional habitat in Orange County to see if the orchid occurs anywhere else nearby.
