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

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 General meetings and Board of Directors meetings will be held using the Zoom app.

Our next monthly meeting is our Annual Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 1st. This is one of two members only events. Since we are hosting this party on Zoom we will feature two speakers and there will be no Plant Forum. We usually have a plant table for members but since we can not gather in Balboa Park this year our board has figured out a way to implement this. Please see the December Newsletter for more details.
Our lead presenter will be Arthur Pinkers. Arthur's presentation will cover all the AOS judging it was possible to have in our region this year. Our 2nd speaker will be Jim Cootes. He will talk to us about "Dendrochilum of the Philippines."
Jim has provided a list of the orchids he will discuss. To download the list in pdf format (readable by most browsers) Click Here.
There will be no Culture Class on Wednesday Dec. 2nd.

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.
