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!
General Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month with the exception of September (Annual BBQ & Auction) & December (Holiday Dinner). The location for all General Meetings is the Veterans Memorial Building, 1351 Maple Avenue, Santa Rosa (across the street from the Sonoma County Fairgrounds). There is abundant & free parking.
Doors open at 6:30pm with plant sales and skill sessions (if scheduled) starting at 6:45. The meeting ends between 9:00 and 9:30pm.
Do You Miss Attending Our Monthly Meetings?
You Still Can Attend… Virtually! Due to the Shelter-In-Place mandate, the SCOS will begin holding our meetings via ZOOM. Members will receive an email link prior to each meeting and if you wish to attend as a guest, please send an email to email@example.com and we will send you an invitation.
