The Charlie Horwood Memorial Pink Lady Slipper Orchid Walk, June 24, 2017

Allan Stein, Nature Newfoundland and Labrador Mount Scio seems to have an ideal micro-climate for Pink Lady Slipper Orchid (Cypripedium acaule). For 12 or 15 years, until his death in 1992, Charlie Horwood led a few trusted friends to view his favourite pink lady slipper orchid patch. (Cypripedium acaule).   It was the highlight of the spring for the lucky few.  Charlie seemed to have direct communication with the orchids and knew some of his favourite plants intimately.  He knew exactly where to find each of the three albino plants and the massive plants that had thirty or more flower stems.  Charlie was among the naturalists who resurrected the Newfoundland Natural History Society (for the third time!) in 1970 and served on the executive, including as President for years.
