The goal of the Action Week is to increase public awareness of invasive species issues and promote public participation in California's fight against invasive species and their impacts on our natural resources.
Prevention is the most effective strategy in managing invasive species. However, hundreds of invasive plants and animals have already established in California and are rapidly spreading each year. These invaders are negatively impacting our waters, our native plants and animals (some of them rare, threatened or endangered), our agriculture, our health, our economy, and our favorite recreational places. Help us celebrate the inaugural California Invasive Species Action Week, and more importantly, help stop the spread of invasive species, by volunteering to take action.
It will be held again at South Coast Plaza Village, 1621 W. Sunflower St. in Santa Ana near the Corner Bakery and the Room & Board Store. This is just across Sunflower St from the main South Coast Plaza Complex.
There will be orchid growers from Western USA, South America and Asia showing thousands of exotic orchids for display and for sale.
Two large display rooms will give you the opportunity of seeing and smelling some of the finest orchids in the world.
