Michael's Rein Orchid, Photo by Ken-ichi. found along Falls Trail on Mt. Diablo
In his study of orchids, Curtis became curious about what orchids occurred naturally in California.
This became the basis of his ongoing search for native orchids. In 1996, he moved to the State of Colima in
Mexico where he spent most of the next ten years. He did considerable exploring of the western areas of
Mexico, especially the Pacific Coast, and was able to locate and photograph many of the native orchids. He
now lives in Sanger, about 15 miles east of Fresno.
Curtis has prepared a program which he hopes will stimulate the members’ interest in searching for, finding,
and photographing the native orchids of our area.
