Spring Show
Dates Change!

Up Coming Show Dates:

Our 2016 Spring Show dates have changed! It happens that the late February dates conflicted with San Francisco's Orchid Show, which is currently the largest show in the country! Dave Hoffmaster was able to work with the Scottish Rite Center and move our show to March 10th through March 13th We still want everyone to start planning ahead for our major event.

The 2016 Winter Orchids in the Park Show & Sale is January 30th & 31st.

Volunteer Signup Sheets are now online for each of these events.

Our Purpose: To promote interest in orchids and their cultivation, to educate by exchanging information and experiences related to successful orchid culture , and to support the conservation of orchids in the wild.
