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.
We are an affiliate of the American Orchid Society (AOS),
participate in native orchid conservation projects, and coordinate our
activities with other regional AOS affiliates.
Meetings are open to the public, and are held on the
third Thursday of the month (except July and August) at 7:30pm, at the
Churchville Nature Center, Churchville PA (click on link below for
