Welcome to the Oregon Orchid Society, Portland, OR
Map of the Ambridge Event Center:
The Oregon Orchid Society proudly supports the Orchid Conservation Alliance (OCA). OOS president and OCA member Dick Van Ingen has participated in several OCA trips including the 2012 Ecuador trip. The purpose of these trips is to raise funds for further OCA conservation efforts in a given region. The 2012 trip to Ecuador coincided with a large-scale orchid conservation effort and show hosted by numerous entities including the Ecuadorian government. There are great things happening in Ecuador when it comes to orchid conservation! Join us for a review of this trip – which includes many blooming orchid pictures.
Our annual picnic is a fun time at the wonderful property of OOS membership chair Lori Rheinberger. Bring food for this pot-luck event. We’ll spend a relaxing day with the barbeque at her creek-side property AND her three greenhouses that she’d be glad to show off!
Per our April meeting, August was decided to be the best month for the picnic, but the exact date has yet to be determined – we’ll let you know as soon as that is ironed out.
It’s going to be a great time!
This year the society member greenhouse tour will be on Portland’s east side. It’s always a great time of learning from others on how orchids can be grown. We’ll visit three member’s greenhouses – date to be determined.
