In his most recent film -- The Wild Orchid Man in the Devil’s Realm -- Dalstrom travels to the Australian island of Tasmania and Western Australia seeking the strange and unique plants and animals that inhabit this region. Along the way they learn about the history and culture of this amazing land. The emphasis in this particular film is that not all orchids are big, flashy and bold. The orchids in Tasmania are often tiny, tiny, and tiny but “even those tiny little things are fascinating to study,” he says.

This program is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon in the large conference room at Extension's Twin Lake Parks office.
