The Orchid

Each month from September to June hardworking volunteers prepare our issue of the Orchid Bulletin. Members of the PFN receive a hard copy of the Orchid delivered right to their door. The Bulletin is full of excellent articles, prepared by many of our members. It is excellent reading material and a great way to stay connected to what is happening with all things nature in Peterborough. Our monthly newsletter can be downloaded as a PDF.
