Hunting for Orchids in the Flemish Woodlands

bijenorchis ewoudFor the third time, the Sustainability Consult Team will join Natuurpunt’s beautiful Nocturne walk in the Silsombos. Led by Natuurpunt experts, the dusk walk will reveal the magic of the Flemish woodlands, which at this time of year are filled with orchids. If you fancy escaping the city, then join us for an evening of discovery!
