If you are not a member and want to attend, contact our First Vice President(Debby Halliday) at for information.

Our July "Orchids in the Park" Show and Sale has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Join Us Next Month:
Because of the COVID-19 situation we do not have access to Room 101 in the Casa Del Prado building. Our meetings will be held using the Zoom app. Our next Board of Directors Meeting will be held using Zoom on July 9th which allows for the installation of the new officers.

Our next monthly meeting is Tuesday July 7th. Palomar Orchid Society will join us to hear Peter Lin's talk about "Genus Dendrobium - A Family Portrait of Dendrobium Species”. This meeting will not have a Culture Class but will feature a virtual plant forum. If you want to participate, please send 1 to 4 images of plants in bloom now with the data we normally have on our tag (click here) to -  We’ll share as many as we can. We are trying to work out Culture Classes for Zoom meetings but we don't think they will be on our regular meeting days.

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.
