Welcome to the Website of the
Bucks County Orchid Society

Sanderara Black Star

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).

Please print the final list from the website and bring it to the auction for reference. Also, please remember to bring a box or bag to take home your purchases (and any extra boxes you may have will be appreciated) and because there is construction at the Nature Center, bring a flashlight to get from the parking lot to the Center..
