Dave Nixon was a Project Manager by profession and only discovered the alluring world of orchids when he retired in 2011. He freely admits that his wife, Lois, is the actual orchid grower in the family and he has been treated to a wonderful display of Paphiopedilums throughout the winter and spring. Dave has been the president of the Orchid Species Preservation Foundation (OPSPF) since 2014 and served for two years as the secretary of the AOS Conservation Committee. Dave’s focus has been to ensure the long term financial stability of the OSPF to allow the foundation to become a hub for facilitating the conservation of Western Canadian Orchids. To this end, the OSPF has leased a facility and set up a propagation facility signed collaborative agreements with MacEwan University, Wagner Natural Area Society and the North American Orchid Conservation Centre (NAOCC) of the Smithsonian. This group is currently collecting basic data on Cypripedium [Cyp.] passerinum and Galearis [Gale.] rotundifolia.
