Some of the sites in the Volunteer campground are already occupied, but these seasonal residents won't mind sharing as long as you are considerate of them. Particularly alongside the stream, the Calypso Orchids have been blooming for the last two weeks. Calypso bulbosa is particularly delicate. It relies on its flower to complete the photosynthetic process, and if the stalk is broken, the root of the parent plant may die. Volunteers who are staying in the campground should keep their eyes open for this tiny beauty.
