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 directions).
