Sonoma County Orchid Society

Our purpose is to foster the growth and preservation of native and hybrid orchids in Sonoma County and around the world.

The Society is open to hobbyists and professionals, novice to expert, all are welcome. We are here to learn, share and have fun!

Chairs will be set up with extra space in between each chair to follow social distancing guidelines. Water and tea will be provided, but please bring your own snacks.
