Meetings

The Bucks County Orchid Society (BCOS) is a small group of orchid enthusiasts that meet ten times a year in southeast PA to share ideas, experiences, and knowledge about orchid growing. Our membership includes beginners, experienced hobbyists, commercial growers, and AOS judges, who grow their orchids on windowsills, under lights and in greenhouses. Many bring in blooming plants for the show table. Most meetings feature a knowledgeable speaker and a plant raffle.

Meetings are open to the public, and are held on the third Thursday of the month (except July and August) at 7:30pm, at :

Churchville Nature Center
501 Churchville Lane
Churchville, PA 18966

Come Join Us!  All experience levels are welcome!
