PODCAST: Smelling Orchid Roots at The Ridges

There are roughly 29 known species of orchids at The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor and Tony Kiszonas is now responsible for assuring their health, productivity and future. While that may be a bit of an overstatement, it’s not far from the truth: Tony is the Ridges new Director of Research, the organization’s first. Tony talks with Debra Fitzgerald about the research being done at the Ridges – including what smelling an orchid root can reveal about the plants.
