Who We Are
The Central California Orchid Society (CCOS)
was founded as a way for fellow orchid enthusiasts to pursue their passion for orchids with others who share the same interest. In addition, our mission is to help new hobbyists further their knowledge and appreciation of a wonderful hobby in a fun and lively atmosphere.
Becoming a member of the Central California Orchid Society offers local growers a number of advantages.
You have the opportunity to get to know other growers in the area who grow their orchids under the same conditions and are willing to share information. We have our own society handbook entitled "ORCHIDS IN THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY", compiled by Richard Buchter, which is tailored towards growing orchids in the San Joaquin Valley. Member's price $10.00, and non-member's price $12.00.
Besides our general meetings, we have special events throughout the year including:
Central California Orchid Society Spring Show
Tour of Member's Greenhouses
Orchid Display at the Big Fresno Fair
Annual Holiday Luncheon in December
Field Trip to See Native Orchids
And last, but not least, a whole lot of fun with other orchid enthusiasts.
General Meetings are held the first Thursday of the month except for July and December. Doors open and plant sales begin at 6 PM.
The general meeting is called to order by the Society's President at 6:30 PM.
