The Orchid Social
A Science Friday Garden Party with Ira Flatow
Originally Aired: Monday, April 9, 2018
Join Ira Flatow in welcoming spring to New York City as Science Friday hosts a party inspired by his favorite perennial, the orchid.
Enjoy a lively discussion with orchid experts and storytellers over drinks and food. Ira will host an informal panel discussion with Marc Hachadourian, curator of the orchid collection at the New York Botanical Garden, and Susan Orlean, journalist and author of The Orchid Thief, as well as a screening of the Science Friday video Sex, Lies, and Orchids.
Mingle over a passion for botany, converse with other orchid enthusiasts, and may even have the opportunity to win an orchid from Ira’s personal collection.
