North American Orchid Conservation Center
Native orchids are at risk! NAOCC is committed to the survival of our native orchids through programs that focus on preservation, propagation and education. Your gift will help NAOCC grow a network of botanic gardens, public and private landowners, researchers, educators and citizens to meet this challenge.
Your generous gift will support activities such as:
- Student internships at the Smithsonian Institution or partner organizations ($6,000 per 12 week internship)
- Post-doctoral fellowships that focus on the ecology of our native orchids ($50,000 per year)
- Supporting our partners’ efforts on orchid propagation and NAOCC’s interactive website ($20,000 - $50,000 per partner organization)
- Expanding NAOCC’s interactive website
- The establishment of an endowment to ensure NAOCC’s ability to support our orchid heritage.
NAOCC is based at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), a nonprofit research institute at the Smithsonian Institution. Make your tax-deductible gift to support NAOCC today!
