A Rare and Endangered orchid was found during Chereninup Creek Reserve launch day! Ongerup botanists Lynda Strahan and Sue Oborne discovered a population of the Sandplain sun-orchid, Caladenia bryceana subsp. bryceana, while walking the Chereninup property after the launch ceremony. They also turned up 14 other orchid species flowering that day. A wonderful example of the importance of this reserve and area, and of the deep local knowledge we can both tap into and support.
